Project Description:

Our RAFT and Watershed Cleanup Programs aim to educate communities about the impact of human consumption on the planet, clean up and collect critical data on the river’s ecological health, as well as the plastic and other waste polluting the Watershed. Managing the overall project will be our Staff Scientist/Watershed Manager, who started early in Q1 2022 and replaced a staff member who left to get her PhD in freshwater ecology at UC Berkeley. Our new hire will be supported by our Development and Communications Director and Outreach and Communications Manager (active search), who oversee volunteer and community engagement.
