Ready to get some fresh air and contribute to the health of the watershed? Volunteers that join the
Watershed Litter Cleanup will play a vital role in removing trash from high-use areas, along waterways, and
trails. This work protects critical habitats and waterways, while helping serve the mission of the Marin
Water to maintain the scenic beauty and the biological richness of the Mt. Tamalpais Watershed.

This activity is suitable for individuals or small groups. All participants must follow strict safety precautions and social distancing guidelines. This volunteer activity should take approximately three hours once you have attended a short orientation led by Marin Water staff.

We will provide trash bags, disposable gloves, and sanitized trash-grabber tools, as well as a day parking pass and T-shirt- let us know your size!

Please email us at VolunteerProgram@MarinWater.org or call 415.945.1128 to sign up. Details, maps and guidelines for this program will be provided during a brief 30- minute orientation. Half-hour time slots for the orientation are available on October 12 and 15 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM and on October 23 from 2:30 PM to 3:30 PM. Contact us to schedule your orientation time, and to pick up your sanitized gear. Once you have completed an orientation, you may hunt for litter whenever you are out on the watershed.

We look forward to working with you soon!

Mission Statement

To manage our natural resources in a sustainable manner and to provide our customers with reliable, high-quality water at a reasonable price.

Description

The MMWD volunteer program strives to connect people to nature and their water source by offering hands-on activities on the Mt. Tamalpais Watershed.

Volunteers are currently engaged in habitat restoration, trails maintenance, environmental education, biological monitoring and geographic information systems mapping.

Through their experiences volunteers gain skills, become stewards, contribute to the health and safety of the watershed and have fun while doing so.

MMWD manages 18,500 acres of land in the Mt. Tamalpais Watershed and 2,750 acres adjacent to the Nicasio and Soulajule reservoirs in west Marin. The Mt. Tamalpais Watershed has been identified by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as a key component of a biosphere reserve, a designation given to biodiversity hot spots like the Amazon rainforest.
