Contra Costa Water District is partnering with C.A.S.T. for Kids to host our annual fishing day at Los Vaqueros. It’s a free event that pairs kids and teens with special needs and their caretakers with local volunteer fishing experts for a day of fishing!
We’re in the warmest months of the year – which means we’re feeling the heat out at the watershed, as well as the wind. See the latest updates about heat safety and recent fish plants.
Rattlesnakes are very common in the Los Vaqueros Watershed. Especially as the weather warms up and the sun is out. Please be aware of your surroundings and maintain a safe distance if you encounter a rattlesnake.
We graze cattle seasonally at the Los Vaqueros Watershed to manage habitat, which helps minimize wildfire risk and promotes biodiversity. Seeing cattle at LV might give you pause, so here are some tips to safely share open space with cows on the trail.
