You can also help the watershed on your own If you live along the creek, plant shrubs and trees that like to live by water (like willows) to help build a corridor of plants to shade the creek for fish, filter runoff to keep the water clean, and to protect the stream banks from erosion. Be careful to use only the amount of fertilizer or pesticides that are absolutely necessary. Learn about invasive weeds and pull them when you find them.

If you play along the creek, know and follow the fishing regulations to keep fish populations growing for the future, pack out your trash to keep the water and stream-side forests clean, and be careful with fire so we don’t lose the forests above the creek that help slow and filter runoff.

 
Here are a few examples of how others are helping the watershed
