The mission of the Contra Costa Resource Conservation District is to facilitate conservation and stewardship of the natural resources in Contra Costa County.

Donate to the Martinez Alhambra Way Mural

Friends of Alhambra Creek member, Jeff Sherwin, is leading a project to paint a mural featuring native flora and fauna on the Highway 4 underpass at Alhambra Way in Martinez. The location of the mural can be found at the following coordinates: 37.991749, -122.126641. Tim Hon of Illuminaries will design and paint (with volunteer help) a vibrant and educational mural. The mural project has been approved by Martinez City Council and CalTrans (the property owner). The only thing currently standing between the blank wall coming to life is funding.

Please consider donating to celebrate Martinez and help this mural come to life. This project will keep Martinez a beautiful place to live, work and play. Your donation is tax deductible to the full extent of the law. If you donate $1,000 or more, you or your business/organization can have your name memorialized on the mural and receive other acknowledgements.

E-mail Jeff at with any questions or suggestions.
