Exciting news for those who care about Watersheds!

The California Department of Water Resources (www.dwr.water.ca.gov) has

citizens and grassroots environmental programs to work with state and 
federal partners to restore the ecological health of our watersheds and 

There are watershed coordinators in each of the Dept of Water Resource 
districts covering the entire state, who will work hand in hand with the 
DWR's Urban Streams Program and the Fish Passage Program to assist locally 
driven restoration and stewardship efforts.

Explore watershed issues applying Permaculture principles and design 
techniques that interconnect your home and backyard to the whole 
watershed.  The land around your home is a vital part of the 
watershed.  How that land is managed -- one lot at a time-- can have a 
significant impact on your city's flood protection, water supply, air and 
water quality. Permaculture techniques can help control erosion, reduce 
flooding, minimize water pollution, improve groundwater recharge and 
enhance wildlife habitat.
