The Explore your Watershed Earth Day event is back! Register to receive the exploration maps, discover the secret word and win prizes!
1. Wander Around the Watershed with our Watershed Exploration Challenge
Join the Watershed Exploration Challenge! Explore your watershed through three different courses! Each course has a map and directions that lead you to checkpoints that explain natural and cultural history in the San Francisco Bay Area. Collect letters at each checkpoint to spell a word that you can enter to win a prize! If you aren’t able to wander about your watershed, we have a mapping activity you can do at home as well as an educational trivia challenge! Snap a photo of your adventure and share it on social media! #EarthDayWatershedChallenge
2. Join our Instagram live for our “Hell Strip to Habitat” Sidewalk Garden Challenge
Would you rather explore your watershed from the comfort of home? Join us on Instagram live on April 22 to witness the installation of a community sidewalk garden! Learn from our experts about techniques and inspiration for transforming your own sidewalk strip into a community habitat garden. Join us on Instagram live on April 22: @thewatershedproject_
3. Support our work by contributing to our $1,500 Donation Challenge
Now more than ever, our earth calls for healthy watersheds that support all members of the community within them. Please consider lending support to The Watershed Project in our ongoing mission to inspire Bay Area communities to understand, appreciate, and protect our shared watersheds by contributing any amount possible. Whether $5 or $1,000, your contribution will enrich and enhance our watershed education programs, our green infrastructure projects, and the monitoring of stream health throughout the East Bay. We thank you for your involvement in this work!
4. Share with us and the rest of the Watershed Community your progress and fun pics.
We are excited to see your progress as you take our Earth Day Challenge with housemates and family. Post your pictures to social media using #OneWatershed or #EarthDayWatershedChallenge
Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for current updates during the Earth Day month.
The Watershed Project gratefully acknowledges the support of the City of Albany and we thank The Friends of 5 Creeks and the Sogorea Te’ Land Trust for their help in providing educational resources.
