To celebrate 100 years of delivering high-quality drinking water while protecting precious natural resources, we invite you to explore some of our scenic reservoirs and breathtaking watersheds in a series of guided walks. Join us for East Bay watershed walks and learn about EBMUD’s fascinating history and the work we’re doing today.
In addition, EBMUD and Wholly H2O are hosting bioblitzes, an event that focuses on finding and identifying as many species as possible in a specific area over a short period of time.
Bring your smartphone or another camera, sunblock, water to stay hydrated, snacks, and prepare for maximum wonderment. Check out iNaturalist to see what other species our community has documented
