Ready to get some fresh air and contribute to the health of the watershed? We are excited to offer one nature-based program that can easily be accomplished following Marin Public Health health orders.
We are looking for volunteers to remove trash from high-use areas, along waterways and trails. This work protects critical habitats and waterways-clean areas promote responsible behavior. We will provide trash bags and sanitized trash-grabber tools.
This activity is suitable for individuals or small groups from the same household or social bubble. All participants must follow strict safety precautions and social distancing guidelines.
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 orientation. Half-hour time slots for the orientation are available on Wednesdays. 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.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

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