Creeks & Watersheds
Marin County from Whites Hill

Marin County is recognized for its beauty, much of it the open spaces, trees, and ridgelines and water views of ocean and bay. These qualities are what draws people to spend time in the county, to live, work, and visit. The need to protect the land, its people and wildlife, and water is the motivation behind this website. Our watersheds define more than habitat, they define who we are and where we live. They influence rainfall patterns, the types of trees and plants we see, and how we define the cities and towns of the county. This website provides information to understand how our watersheds function, information about the creeks and habitats, flooding and flood protection, and what you can do to be a steward of your watershed, no matter where you are in Marin.
