Project Description:

Peralta Hacienda Historical Park requests $15,000 to support winter, spring and summer watershed education and restoration programs, which engage youth in hands-on watershed experiences in the East Creek Watershed. Participants monitor water quality, visit nearby creeks to compare and contrast creek health, clean up trash and remove invasive species, and restore native plant communities. Youth communicate their findings to the greater community through presentations and interpretive installation to spearhead a sustained movement for creek health.
