Basins of Relations: Watershed Stewardship and Training Program
California Watershed Protection Fund, 2018

Alameda County ; Contra Costa County
Project Description:

The Basins of Relations Watershed Stewardship & Training Program trains young people from West Contra Costa County to become stewards of their watersheds, communities, and the creeks that run through them. Natural spaces in urban areas are often neglected, fenced off, overgrown, and viewed as a hazard rather than a community resource. This trend is particularly pronounced in underserved communities of color. The BoR program fights this injustice and reconnects members of the Richmond community with their natural surroundings through holistic education and multi-benefit restoration projects.
