Watershed Council Activities

 

Trinidad Fish Festival

Come by and visit the Trinidad Bay Watershed Council table and kids’ activities while you’re in town at the Trinidad Fish Festival.   We’ll have the information you need about water conservation, preventing water pollution and all about the Trinidad ASBS and watersheds.

Take a free tour of the lighthouse. It’s a working lighthouse and it’s only open to the public once a year. You can hike up Trinidad Head. Round trips start at 11:00 AM and end at 3:00 PM.

Discover Trinidad has this to say about the Trinidad Fish Festival:  “More than just great fish meals; this fun festival attracts artists and craftsmen from all over, who fill their booths with treasures. Bring the whole family and enjoy the beautiful views of Trinidad Bay. Enjoy our spectacular kids zone which will include surf & skate activities and face painting.”

Draft Climate Change Vulnerability Report Presented at TBWC Meeting

The Trinidad Bay Watershed Council and the City of Trinidad invite the public, agencies and other stakeholders to a presentation and discussion of the draft document Climate Change Vulnerability Report and Adaptation Response during our upcoming Trinidad Bay Watershed Council meeting on Tuesday, April 26 at 6:30 pm at the Civic Club Room at City Hall.

The report presents potential effects that could result from climate change, determines areas that could be at risk, and identifies preliminary adaptation strategies the City could adopt to mitigate the potential climate impacts. The Climate Change Vulnerability Report and Adaptation Response is being developed as part of the City’s Local Coastal Program Update Project, funded in part by the Coastal Commission.  During this project, climate change considerations and adaption responses will be incorporated into the General Plan / Coastal Land Use Plan as appropriate.

The full report including appendices can be found at the Resources page.
