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.

Summer has been upon us for quite a while and the kids have just a few more weeks before school revs up again! Yikes!
Our plants are battling the heat thanks to Chris from NAWA! He's diligently watering weekly and we should have better success with our plants over this hot summer. He's been bringing NAWA students out the last few weeks also.
The Himalayan Blackberry and Tree of Heaven are putting up a fight and trying to take over. Fortunately we have a little more time on the grant to hack away at them! Here's a picture of the site on July 12th.
Enjoy the last few weeks of summer!
