watershed field tripJoin us on a walking tour of the Mt. Tamalpais Watershed and learn about ecology, water supply and water conservation. This field trip is designed to teach students about the source and use of their water while inspiring them to take action to conserve this precious resource. A typical Water Walk field trip covers approximately 1.5 miles of fairly flat terrain and takes about 2.5 hours to complete. A classroom visit prior to or following the field trip is encouraged. We can accommodate up to 30 students per trip; a minimum of 15 students is required. Please note: The Water Conservation Walks are not offered during the winter months of November-February.

Our 3-hour field trip offers a hands-on, place-based learning experience through direct participation in habitat restoration. Students also enjoy high-energy ecology games and receive an introduction to our water’s path from “watershed to tap.” A classroom visit prior to the field trip date prepares participants for the field day and allows for discussion around ecology, restoration and watersheds. We can accommodate up to 30 students per trip. For additional information call 415-945-1128 or email our Volunteer Program.
