The Friends of Orinda Creeks (FOC) is a volunteer organization, founded in 1994. Members of FOC work hands-on to monitor, restore, and protect native habitat to our creeks in order to maintain clean water and a healthy watershed. To achieve these goals and increase awareness of creek issues, we invite volunteers from the community, including residents, homeowners, students from Orinda’s schools, Girl Scouts, and Boy Scouts, to participate in this ongoing effort.
Trash along Orinda's downtown creek.
Join Friends of Orinda Creeks for the annual beach and inland watershed cleanup right here in Orinda! Trash accumulates along San Pablo Creek in Downtown Orinda and flows downstream all the way to San Pablo Reservoir and beyond to the San Francisco Bay. Help take care of our fragile marine environment by volunteering your time right here in your own downtown.
