Alameda Creek Watershed Signage Project
The Alameda Creek Watershed Council (ACWC) is proposing to post specially-made, highly durable signs that name the creeks in the Alameda Creek Watershed at major trails and roads crossings. This project is intended to educate the public about their environment; specifically, to create awareness of local creeks within the larger Alameda Creek watershed and to stimulate stewardship activities. Signs will be installed throughout the cities, parks and open land in the Alameda Creek watershed. The ACWC is currently
seeking funding to support implementation of this project.
