What Is A Watershed?
A watershed is an area of land that drains to a body of water.
Learn about watershed ecology and the importance of protecting our creeks and ocean at the Watershed Resource Center located at Arroyo Burro Beach. Due to COVID, our Beach Cleanups, held on the 2nd Sundays of the Month at 10:00 am are CANCELLED.
An eco-friendly building, the WRC features low-toxicity and reclaimed materials. While you’re here, be sure to check out the upcycled floor that was originally an old gymnasium court.
The Watershed Resource Center is usually available for community-based organizations with watershed, coastal, and environmental-related missions to use as a venue for meetings, public forums and events. Due to COVID, the building is not currently available for community group use.
For questions about Beach Cleanups, contact Lydia at (805) 884-0459 or email Lydia.
