Fifth Quadrennial Contra Costa County Creek and Watershed Symposium
December 3rd at the Pleasant Hill Community Center
The Symposium is an event that draws local groups, community members, & representatives from the public and private sectors interested in creek and watershed health together to share information, problem solve and network. The first Creek and Watershed Symposium in 1999 resulted in the creation of the Contra Costa Watershed Forum (CCWF). The CCWF is an open committee of some fifty organizations, including state and local agencies, local non-profit environmental and education organizations, community volunteer groups, and private citizens. The work of CCWF participants is premised on the notion that actions in a watershed are inter-related and, therefore, that broad participation and cooperation is needed to affect change. Members of the CCWF work together to find common approaches to making our water resources healthy, functional, attractive and safe community assets. We hope to see you at the 2015 Contra Costa County Watershed Symposium.
