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.

FGWS David's Poetry

The creek was churning
The kids were learning

People were walking
Others were talking

No one seemed to care
That the creek was there

But then the fire started
And some of us departed

But the creek was left alone
To defend itself and its home

And then three schools stood up
To help it along its way

Because if we don’t do something
The creek might be gone some day
