Friends of Pinole Creek Watershed

The Pinole Creek Watershed unifies a diverse community that is actively involved in its stewardship. Pinole Creek is a central feature of the landscape, and hosts a healthy riparian habitat, including a native steelhead trout population. Its clea

n waters are safe for children to play in, a creek-side trail links parks, schools, and  neighborhoods.

Our goals are to increase awareness and to provide quality educational opportunities for the general public to study the value of this natural resource and to accumulate and afford financial support for these goals. We will promote and support the identification, assessment and monitoring and contr

ibute to the restoration planning process of Pinole Creek,  its watershed and wetlands.
