How You Can Help

Many people in our community have made it possible for you to explore life in our watershed with Splash – scientists, teachers, government workers, parents, and grandparents from all over Sacramento. Sharing our knowledge and appreciation of water and nature is one way we can show you that we care about you and this place we call “home.” We know that water and habitat protection starts with education.

You now know much more about vernal pools than most adults in California. You’ve learned the names and stories of plants and animals that call them home. You’ve seen how much they depend on clean water for life. Most importantly, you understand how much clean water depends on us and how you can help protect it.

Now it is your turn to become a kind of teacher. By sharing your knowledge with others you have the power to destroy ignorance. It is ignorance that destroys water quality in our watershed and the life that depends on it. Most people do not know how to keep water clean and why it is important. With more understanding, our community can better protect aquatic life not only in the vernal pools but also in the streams, lakes and other wetlands that need our help.

People care about things they understand and protect what they care about.
