Community Collaboration Ensures a Hopeful Future for Gravenstein Creek

In early December our restoration team partnered with Point Blue Conservation Sciences’ Students and Teachers Restoring Watershed (STRAW) program and Sonoma Resource Conservation District's Farming Agriculture Resource Management for Sustainability(FARMS) program to get school kids out in the field restoring Gravenstein Creek on the City of Santa Rosa’s Brown Farm.

We hosted four classes of 3rd graders and the high school FARMS students. All told, 130 plants were installed, including 25 milkweed plants! The students and teachers all had a great time and loved getting their hands in the soil to help restore an important tributary of the Laguna.
