Gain hands on experience in natural resource protection

We are looking for new interns! If you (or someone you know) would be interested in learning about natural resource management and stream ecology, then we’d love to have you on the team. Further details and an online application can be found at:

This paid internship is geared towards college students or recent graduates of local universities that are seeking a career in natural resource management or the environmental sciences. Interns work between 1-3 days a week to restore and enhance stream side (riparian) habitat in the Livermore-Amador valley watershed. We work primarily outside doing field work to monitor and maintain ongoing project sites. Field work includes: hand weeding, mowing, watering, mulching, soil bio engineering and bio monitoring. During the rainy season (October-April), we host volunteer events where we pick up trash from local streams, plant native vegetation, and remove invasive weeds.

Volunteer Event 4/21/2018

We hosted our volunteer appreciation party at Touriga Creek this past Saturday April 21st. We had 10 rock star volunteers attend and they removed 20 gallons of trash and recyclables. We had an award ceremony where we gave out t-shirts, hats and sweaters with the Living Arroyos logo. Volunteers were then treated to cupcakes from Cake Delight and sandwiches from Mr. Pickle’s.


Setting up the party!


Thank you for a great volunteer season!
