Latest News From the Coastal Watershed Council


The 2013-14 fiscal year was a record setting year for the Coastal Watershed Council! If you want to read about the Coastal Watershed Council’s accomplishments over the past year, check out CWC’s annual report and read about all that you helped achieve.

Some example include, CWC founding the San Lorenzo River Alliance, bringing together all the right players from government and other organizations to improve this key river, together. In schools we taught over 1,700 students and collaborated with 40 teachers in nearly 300 classrooms, shaping tomorrow’s scientists and leaders. And to ensure clean water for this community, we launched a first of its kind water quality monitoring effort on the San Lorenzo River and leveraged the contributions of 150 citizen scientists, producing 3,859 scientifically valid water quality data points on 50 water bodies.

None of this could have happened without the help of CWC’s supporters – thank you. Click here to see a full list of CWC’s donors and partners.
