The Streams of Santa Clara County
Our focus is on the streams of Santa Clara County such as the one on the left. Someday all of our streams could look like this if we work on it together.
The Santa Clara County Creeks Coalition seeks to transform our local creeks into “living streams”. ” – full of the fish, birds, plants and other wildlife that once lived here in abundance – and with opportunities for citizen enjoyment of the streams.
We are advocates for:
- ECOSYSTEM RESTORATION: Protecting and enhancing our creeks for the benefit of the fish, birds, plants and the riparian ecosystem as a whole;
- CREEK ENJOYMENT: Creating recreational and educational streamside experiences compatible with “living streams”, for the benefit of all citizens,;
- STRATEGIC ALLIANCE BUILDING: Conducting outreach to public agencies, citizen groups and the business community to develop strategic alliances to restore our creeks and promote their enjoyment
- FUNDING: Securing funding from all sectors for stream restoration at a scale commensurate with the magnitude of the challenges facing our streams.
