What is a watershed?
A watershed is a geographic area where all of the water that runs off of or under that area of land eventually ends up in the same place. This means that the water that runs off of your property eventually ends up in our lakes, rivers, and streams. There are several things you can do to help improve the health of our local creeks and the San Francisco Bay.
Take the watershed pledge today to help protect our water resources!
