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 from Chrysalis Students

Below, Chrysalis Students have added some of the poetry that they have written at the restoration site.

The Southern Sky


The sun resurrects in the southern sky

The moon disappears in the faded light

You hear birds chirp and eagles fly

And the ferocious sounds of bobcats fight

The silent sound of the forest cry

The heavy sound of birds take flight

A weakened growl of a bobcat die

A victory chant out of sight

As you look up to the southern sky.

Laughter, joy, and learning

I've had that all today

I look forward to more,

because we will do this again in May
