Creek Restoration Project Continues in Civic Park Mar. 11
For our Saturday, March 11 workday, we'll care for our new plants and start clearing next year's restoration area. No experience is required -- just a desire to make the creek a better place for both humans and wildlife. Join us for some rewarding work, camaraderie, and a brief talk about an aspect of the work we're doing.

Creek Cleanup for the Salmon Was a Success
Since salmon need clean water both to live in and reproduce, we cleaned up an area of Walnut Creek where salmon usually come to spawn. Because of the homeless camps nearby, there were a lot of large objects like grocery carts, old clothing, and luggage, along with a lot of cigarette butts and fragments of packaging. We didn't see a single plastic bag, however. We were not able to remove all the trash, but it's a lot cleaner than it was and we'll return next year.
In February, volunteers planted flowers and scattered seeds.
Volunteers cleaned up the creek for the salmon on October 29.
