Environmental stewardship is a core value at Putah Creek Council. For years, we have worked to engage community members in local restoration projects along the creek. Working closely with our partners, the Council helps to gather volunteer labor to get plants in the ground and the hard work done at local restoration sites within the Putah Creek Watershed!
To attend a stewardship event, no prior experience or training is required. Putah Creek Council provides all the guidance and tools necessary to cultivate healthy habitat.
Putah Creek Cleanups
A foundational activity for Putah Creek Council, keeping our creek clean keeps wildlife and humans healthy! For over 30 years, the Council has been hosting cleanups along Lower Putah Creek to keep trash out of our waterways.
Putah Creek Council partners with Solano County Parks and Solano Resource Conservation District to engage community members in ongoing management and habitat enhancement of Lake Solano.
Winters Nature Park
A wonderful recreation spot along Putah Creek, the Nature Park also serves as prime habitat for birds, beavers, otters, and many more wildlife friends! After an ambitious and successful creek realignment effort, Putah Creek Council is working with regional partners to continue long term management of the restoration of this site.
The Yolo Creek and Community Partnership serves as a wonderful example of collaborative action among regional partners to promote restoration while educating members of the public. Generously funded by the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, Yolo Resource Conservation District, Point Blue Conservation Science, Center for Land Based Learning, and the Council work to create healthy wildlife habitat while engaging the community in hands-on stewardship.
