The Friends of Marsh Creek Watershed will be doing a restoration project this weekend at the corner of Cypress and Main Street in Oakley and are looking for some volunteers to help with this project. Volunteers will help weed, mulch and plant native plants at our most recent native plant garden.
The funding was partly funded by PG&E’s Nature Restoration Trust, which is a collaboration between PG&E and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF). PG&E’s Nature Restoration Trust contributed $25,000 towards this effort, part of PG&E’s investment of over $1million since 2001 in support of habitat restoration and environmental education in Northern and Central California.

Sustaining Contra Costa County’s Natural Heritage:
A Generation of Conservation Success at Risk
“Contra Costa County has it all — protected natural landscapes, farms that provide fresh fruits and vegetables, downtown streets that encourage strolling and neighborly conversation. This abundance is no accident; it’s taken decades of hard work to protect the places that make this county special and help our cities and towns become better places to live, work, and play.
Now, those tremendous accomplishments are on the chopping block. A powerful developer is pushing our elected officials to remove voter-approved policies that protect threatened lands across the county. Find out more about his proposal and what you can do to help preserve Contra Costa County’s conservation legacy for future generations.”
