Environmental Education

The Port of San Diego's Environmental Education Program's mission is to promote environmental stewardship and to instill an understanding of the importance of a healthy San Diego Bay and watershed. This program's goals are to ensure that local children have the opportunity to participate in memorable environmental education experiences and to give adults an understanding of their role in protecting the watershed in which they live. The local environmental organizations listed below take part in this program to focus education efforts on natural resources, water quality, watershed awareness, and Integrated Pest Management.

Don't Trash the Bay

Stormwater Runoff at Chollas Creek (click to enlarge)Trash is a major component of pollution entering San Diego Bay. Every year thousands of pounds of trash are removed from the Bay and its tidelands. Most trash in the Bay enters via the storm drain system. By taking a few simple steps, such as throwing all trash into the proper receptacles found around the Bay or holding on to trash until a receptacle can be found, everyone can greatly reduce the amount of trash in the Bay.
