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.

Poetry by Mercedes

A river is like the human mind.
Rushing in so many different directions.
Almost as if it can't decide which way it wants to go.
If the river and mind would just stop, maybe things could straighten out.

How can a river be so fast moving in such a calm area?
How can a human be so tense while sitting next to the river quietly?
