Watershed Groups

People Working Together for the Watershed

Protecting the watersheds of Napa County cannot succeed without the participation of the citizens who work, play, and live in the watershed. Although there are many actions an individual can take to protect our natural resources, watershed protection is best accomplished through the cumulative effects of cooperative community awareness and involvement. Building partnerships and working jointly to preserve our watersheds is an essential part of the effort to provide long term protection of our watersheds’ natural systems.
