The Yolo Creek and Community Partnership promotes sustainable land stewardship and enhancement of wildlife habitat in Yolo County.
The Partnership carries out habitat restoration projects along local waterways to replace non-native species and noxious weeds with native plants that sustain diverse wildlife populations, protect soil and water quality, and promote beneficial insects.
The Partnership is the Yolo County Resource Conservation District, the Center for Land Based Learning, and Putah Creek Council. Together we work to: create healthy wildlife habitat on working landscapes in Yolo County, educate high school students and the public about our local environment and the benefits of restoring and enhancing our natural communities and ecosystems, and involve students and community members in hands-on environmental stewardship projects to give them experience working collectively to make a difference on the land and inspiring them to take action on environmental issues.
Coastal Cleanup Day brings together hundreds of volunteers to remove illegally dumped trash from the creek and surrounding areas.
