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.

The water is still raging in April

Hello everyone!!! this is CCS Tad.

These pics are from the last time Chrysalis was out on field study. The water level is so high that it makes it dangerous for us to collect macroinvertebrate samples. The channel profile is steep along the length of the riparian zone where we are conducting restoration. During high flow it prevents us from safely getting down to the stream to kick net. The kids from one of our partner schools, NAWA Academy, built a sturdy bridge this month that allows us to now cross over the creek and revegetate the south side. Thanks NAWA!
