Description/Abstract: 

Living Arroyos is a multi-agency partnership created in 2013 to enhance and maintain the Tri-Valley’s urban streams and streamside habitats. Living Arroyos’ partner members are Zone 7 Water Agency (Zone 7), the City of Livermore, City of Pleasanton, and Livermore Area Recreation and Park District (LARPD). The Living Arroyos program is unique because it goes beyond the once or twice a year creek clean-up events that have been traditionally used to involve the public in stream-related issues. The program aims to create “watershed ambassadors” who are connected to the arroyos in their own backyards and have a greater understanding of local water management issues that impact local streams. Watershed ambassadors are nurtured through three programs that are under the umbrella of Living Arroyos: • Internship Program • Volunteer Workdays • Adopt a Creek Spot Program
