Hands-on experiences help children understand what it takes to protect the environment, how natural ecosystems function, and how those ecosystems relate to our drinking water supply. EBMUD rangers work with students to enrich habitats, stabilize soils, and restore natural conditions for creeks and disturbed areas in the East Bay.
