The Watershed Project
“The Watershed Project is committed to inspiring Bay Area communities to understand, appreciate and protect local watersheds. We are working to restore and preserve the unique ecosystems that make up the San Francisco Bay. We bring a watershed perspective to the urban environment, promoting green design, and supporting natural cycles.
We engage students, teachers and volunteers in creek beds and on the shorelines, giving them the tools to create and care for healthy watersheds. We reach out to support grassroots watershed organizations and nurture young people to aspire to environmental careers defending precious natural resources.” – from thewatershedproject.org

Friends of Sausal Creek works to restore, maintain, and protect the Sausal Creek Watershed.

Gill Tract Community Farm
We want the UC Gill Tract Community Farm to serve as a model for what can be accomplished through collaborative and community-based research and extension within five to ten years: a unique, innovative partnership receiving attention and support from the public, academia, and policy makers.
We envision: Developing and testing models for shared governance and co-stewardship that increase community resilience; Developing and transmitting knowledge of how to grow and prepare healthy food, and increase the public’s consumption of locally-grown healthy food;
Developing and testing models of equitable and affordable distribution of healthy food to all people based on principles of sharing and solidarity economies;
Building collaboration with local food justice groups who are doing similar work, and providing forums and opportunities for popular education. From ucgilltractfarm.wixsite.com
Center for Biological Diversity
At the Center for Biological Diversity, we believe that the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature — to the existence in our world of a vast diversity of wild animals and plants. Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, we work to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. We do so through science, law and creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters and climate that species need to survive. From biological diversity.org
