Participants and Contacts

Projects and organizations were created to raise awareness of the San Francisquito Creek watershed through community education and outreach activities and strengthen the community's connection to the creek. This creek has a long history of preservation efforts. Restoration activities include creek clean-ups, exotic-species removal, and planting watershed-specific species. Organizations such as the San Francisquito Creek Joint Powers Authority (JPA) and San Francisquito Watershed Council were created to bring together people and groups who are interested in the protection and restoration of the creek. The San Francisquito Creek Stewardship Project, which is sponsored by the San Francisquito Watershed Council, provides classroom presentations, school field trips, and community-service opportunities for businesses throughout the Peninsula and South Bay.
