Come and help Watershed Stewards Program remove trash and install Box Elder and White Alder tree cages alongside lower SLO Creek. The event's activities will help to restore the threatened habitat of wildlife and improve watershed health for Steelhead Trout. SLO Creek was affected by atmospheric rivers, which caused trash to accumulate in the floodplain. As a result, sharps may be present and safety procedures will be followed.

Directions to the site:

  • Directions: From Highway 101, take exit 196 and continue east on San Luis Bay Drive. WSP signs and staff will be present at the entrance gate.

Mission Statement

The Watershed Stewards Program (WSP) is dedicated to improving watershed health by actively engaging in restoration science, civic service, and community education while empowering the next generation of environmental stewards.


For over 25 years, the Watershed Stewards Program (WSP) has been engaged in comprehensive, community-based, watershed restoration and education throughout coastal California. WSP places its Corpsmembers with scientists at environmental organizations around the state to assist with watershed data collection and analysis, as well as restoration project development and maintenance. Ultimately, Corpsmembers serve with WSP to help bring threatened and endangered salmonids back to healthy populations by improving watershed health. WSP Corpsmembers also provide watershed education to students at lower-income public schools using the program’s watershed science curriculum, and recruit community volunteers to tackle watershed restoration projects that local organizations might not otherwise have the resources to complete.
