Kids in the Creek

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.

my experience by ccs josh

I spent my first day out at french gulch learning about how different animals and plant life have grown and moved in after the french gulch fire. It didn't really excite me, but as the day went on I got to see the real devastation from the fire. I couldn't help but to think how a bunch of teenagers were going to restore the site if we only come here once a week on Thursdays.

Well, we have done this from the beginning of the year and now it is towards the end and I have seen a massive improvement. I believe that we have helped french gulch take a leap forward in recovering from the mess that the fire left behind.
