After two Rodeo Creek Corridor Community Meetings in the Summer of 2023, the community created an addendum to the 2008 Rodeo Creek Watershed Vision Plan. We have added the conclusions from our meetings to the last section of the living document found below. Thank you to the Rodeo Municipal Advisory Council and the Contra Costa County Watershed Program for their generous funding for this important project!
Coming soon! The Latin American- Spanish version of the Vision Plan! Please come back soon to download and view that copy.
With our Vision Plan as a guide, the Rodeo Creek Watershed Group works to accomplish some of the goals set by the community and its agencies. In order to accomplish this, the group must meet regularly, working together to evaluate the potential projects listed in the document and actively seek funding to carry them out.
In order to sort out the many agencies involved in the Rodeo Watershed, we have provided Jurisdiction Maps to the Watershed Area itself. These maps are a start at ensuring all of the agencies involved in the Rodeo Watershed are identified and incorporated to provide the best support for the watershed.

Heidi Petty has been with the CCRCD since 2007. Her current position is Watershed Program Manager and Fundraising Coordinator, focusing on the Contra Costa side of the Carquinez Strait shoreline. In 1999, Heidi started a small bonsai and custom saltwater reef tank business named ‘Through the Looking Glass: A Living Art Studio’ in Crockett, CA, where she got an in-depth understanding of saltwater filtration and hydrology. Heidi has held numerous community leadership positions in the Crockett, Port Costa, and Rodeo area, including President of the local Chamber of Commerce and Board Member on the Crockett Community Services District. Her entrepreneurialism and government service background makes her a valuable asset to the RCD as a special government district.
She now lives on the river in Oakley, CA, and owns a marina and small urban farm as well as a 28-acre Highlander Cattle Ranch in the SF Delta. She is excited to expand her work by partnering with the technology industry to create innovative ways to help the environment through long-term partnerships and connecting tech to her restoration work.
