spark an understanding about the magnitude of environmental threats facing the Santa
Clara River Watershed and the importance of protecting the rivers watershed through
both our daily actions and civic-minded involvement in our community.
journey through the watershed begins in the past. Viewers are presented with an
overview of the natural history of the watershed; the evolution of and impacts caused
by settlements and industry; and the importance of the Santa Clara River, one of
Southern California’s last free flowing rivers. The exhibit focuses on the river’s
watershed explaining what a watershed is and why they require protection. Emphasis
is placed on the role of this watershed in providing habitat for over 100 species
listed as endangered, sensitive or threatened by government agencies.
receptions include presentations on stewardship and an opportunity to view native
wildlife up close. Equipped with an understanding of the Santa Clara River Watershed,
viewers are invited to see how they can help protect the river’s watershed and the
species that live there. With community involvement, the river of the past will
survive to be the river of the future.
