About the San Pablo Watershed

The San Pablo Creek Watershed

The San Pablo Creek creates a ribbon of green wilderness that flows through the communities of El Sobrante, San Pablo and Richmond, connecting the hills to San Pablo Bay and San Francisco Bay. 


San Pablo Creek and its tributaries escaped the fate of many urban streams, and have not been relegated to underground culverts for much of their length. Instead the San Pablo watershed waterways hide beneath a cloak of trees, harboring fish, birds and other wildlife amidst urban surroundings. Occasionally the creek emerges into view at a bridge or park.  These waterways allow us access to the calming influence of flowing water and green shade. This unique body of water needs the stewardship help of SPAWNERS to ward off the unending incursion of destructive influences.
