The San Pedro Creek Watershed Coalition is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to protecting, enhancing and maintaining the health of San Pedro Creek and its watershed through monitoring, restoration, adaptive management and education.

The upper reaches of San Pedro Creek have healthy riparian areas and winter flows that support migrating steelhead trout. San Pedro is the only creek within 30 miles of San Francisco providing this type of habitat. The most significant physical impacts to the stream come from urbanization in riparian areas, channelization of the lower reaches, and the complete culverting of the North Fork in the 1970’s. Water quality problems appear to relate most significantly to storm drain inputs, especially along the culverted North Fork.
