Due Date: 2025-04-25T21:00:00.000Z
Protecting and restoring San Diego's rivers, streams, and coastline for the communities and wildlife that depend on clean water. In 1982, Hudson River fisherman became concerned about the modern poacher: pollution. They started the first Waterkeeper organization in the United States, and proved so effective at protecting water resources that Waterkeeper organizations trickled throughout the country. Once established, we became the 15th Waterkeeper organization in the country and focused our efforts on local, community-based advocacy. Today, San Diego Coastkeeper continues our role as the region’s clean water watchdog as we help to identify solutions to a new myriad of problems such as water supply challenges and urban runoff. We use community outreach, education and advocacy to empower San Diegans to guard their clean water and healthy ecosystem, relying on you to help us find and fix pollution hazards. Our team of scientists, activists, educators and lawyers work with our community and decision-makers to protect and restore fishable, swimmable and drinkable water in San Diego County. Let's protect our waters, together. Clean Water Activists Program Coastkeeper trains volunteers and members to support clean water issues in San Diego County. This free program requires volunteers to attend a four-part series of one-hour long training sessions. Participants will learn to understand the legal mechanisms of advocacy, engage with elected officials, and provide public comment. From there, activists can take part in calls to action on current and upcoming campaigns.
