The Clear Creek Student Restoration and Monitoring Project is a collaborative service-learning project that teaches and provides educational experiences about the Upper Clear Creek watershed in Shasta County, California. This project is located on French Gulch Creek near the town of French Gulch  and aims to assist students from three local schools with studying, restoring, and monitoring riparian habitat severely burned during the August 2004 French Fire.

CSS Ben's invasive eradication!


Hi, this is CSS Ben. I eradicate invasive plants at French Gulch, like blackberry and mustard plants. We have to do this because the invasive plants will take over and the natural plants will have a hard time growing. As you probably know, the French Fire has devastated the land there, so we must do everything we can to help restore it.
