Trinidad Bay Watershed Council

The Trinidad Bay Watershed Council is a community based organization dedicated to working together to improve and maintain the watersheds, coastal waters and communities in the Trinidad and Westhaven for the benefit of all community members.

The Watershed Council has recently completed the publication Trinidad Bay in 2015, which provides a snapshot of the Trinidad Bay and coastal watersheds with an overview of the Watershed Plan progress to date.

The Trinidad Bay Watershed Council (TBWC) is actively working to support the priority actions outlined in the Trinidad-Westhaven Integrated Coastal Watershed Management Plan. TBWC meets quarterly to discuss watershed issues and plan our activities, which include educating the community about how to maintain our healthy Trinidad Bay watersheds and participating in projects and watershed efforts that restore and enhance the Trinidad watersheds and bay.
