Welcome to Inland Empire Waterkeeper!
Inland Empire Waterkeeper is a grassroots, non-profit water quality organization with a mission to enhance and protect the quality of the waterways within the Upper Santa Ana River Watershed. This is accomplished through five program tenets: advocacy, education, research, restoration, and enforcement. Established in 2005, Inland Empire Waterkeeper is a chapter of Orange County Coastkeeper, which oversees the Orange County portion of the watershed, and is a separately licensed member of the international Waterkeeper Alliance.
Inland Empire Waterkeeper's vision is to achieve a sustainable watershed free of pollution and a community of motivated water stewards to ensure swimmable, drinkable, fishable waters within the Upper Santa Ana River Watershed.
Little Seedlings--Classes Start Soon!
Waterkeeper expands the Little Seedlings program to the Hidden Valley Wildlife Area! Children will learn colors, letters, numbers, and so much more through nature as they become the stewards of the future!
Great for children ages 3-5. Must be potty trained. Children should bring a reusable water bottle and lunch to class every day. Students should also dress in layers, and wear closed-toe shoes, a hat, and sunscreen.
