Learning How to Communicate with Decision Makers


 The CUSP collaborates in a statewide coalition called the California Watershed Coalition in order to communicate to our state legislators and agency managers how stream restoration projects can solve many practical problems such as flooding, stormwater management and flood damages while enhancing wildlife habitat and making streams neighborhood assets.  The California Watershed Coalition is composed of the California Urban Streams Partnership, California Watershed Network, Sonoma Ecology Center, Sierra Nevada Alliance, Northern California Council of Flyfishers, Sacramento River Watershed Program, California Association of Resources Conservation Districts, and Salmonid Restoration Federation. An important emphasis of this educational effort is our support for the state grant programs that support our local work with our partners in cities, counties and districts.  

Join us and our statewide partners for Watershed Day at the Capitol. This is great way to learn about state government, meet key players in state policy positions and make friends with other organizations from all regions of the state.
