"Thousands have lived
without love,
none without water."
— W.H. Auden

Protecting Creeks and Streams

Expanding population, development, pollution and the changing climate threaten the quality and quantity of water in our region. Healthy land and healthy vegetation help ensure clean water — and cost less than mechanical water treatment systems. POST has protected land in every watershed from Pacifica to Santa Cruz and Gilroy – 16 in all.

These watersheds supply drinking water, support native wildlife habitat, offer recreational
opportunities and help us grow fresh food close to home.
