Reducing Flood Risk in the Rheem Creek Watershed
We hope to reduce neighborhood flooding and make Rheem Creek a more enjoyable place to live next to, by making a plan to remove sediment from the creek and plant native trees and plants.

Resources for the home gardener
While we shelter-at-home, our backyards and balconies have become ways to connect with nature. Learn about vegetable gardening ideas for small spaces, or how to collect rain at home through installation of a rainwater catchment barrel. Parents, use our resources to organize your time at home with the kids, and grow your own healthy food!

After so many months of isolation, we’re all craving connections—with each other and with nature. During our darkest months we found solace in walking around our neighborhoods to our local parks and green areas to find respite in little spaces we didn’t even know existed, right near us.Building on this, The Watershed Project has big plans for cool climate adaptation and green schoolyards in 2022. Here’s a few things that we’ll be up to:* Green Schools in Oakland and San Francisco -- planting trees and removing some of the black top on school yards will help improve the health of the students and provide a connection to the natural world on campus.* Green Streets in Richmond -- Improving the experience for pedestrians includes better sidewalks and more shade from urban trees.* A New Natural Shoreline and Sea-Level Buffer in North Richmond -- imagining a new shoreline that has more natural edges which will help buffer frontline communities from sea-level rise.You can help make all of this happen!#GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to stand together in unity⁠⁠—to use their individual and collective power of generosity to remain connected and heal.Thanks to a generous match, we want to raise $20,000 to protect the San Francisco Bay Watershed and advance environmental equity in 2022!
