Volunteer in Your Community

Access to beautiful creeks, wetlands and the Bay make living in Alameda County special. You can be a part of protecting these treasured assets.

Clean Water Program member agencies host volunteer events and partner with local water stewardship nonprofit groups. Volunteering for cleanups, plant restoration and other activities is a great way to experience first-hand how we all are connected to, and impact, the water around us.
