Caring for our Watersheds


caring for watersheds finalists

The Caring for Our Watersheds proposal writing contest, a joint program of the Center for Land-Based Learning and Nutrien, challenges students to research their local watershed, identify an environmental concern and come up with a realistic solution. Students with the top ten proposals of nearly 400 that were reviewed presented their ideas to a panel of community judges. In total, over $27,000 in prize and implementation money is available to students and schools who participate in the program.

CFW California is currently open to all 9th-12th grade students who live in the Sacramento-San Joaquin watershed in Yolo, Solano, Sacramento, Colusa, Yuba, Sutter, Glenn, El Dorado, Placer, and San Joaquin counties.
