Restoring East Bay Streams

For several years, GPFF has sponsored on-the-ground work parties in partnership with local conservation groups. Our volunteers have cleaned creek beds, ripped out invasive plants, and planted willows on stream banks - - - helping restore and enhance Alameda Creek, Pinole Creek, and Codornices Creek in Berkeley/Albany as well as Putah Creek near Winters. Two of these East Bay streams harbor viable populations of steelhead trout, an icon of the Pacific Northwest. Give back to the sport we all enjoy by volunteering for the next work party!

Below is a slideshow of our an Alameda Creek Cleanup work party. You can also view slideshows of our Codornices Creek Cleanup and Pinole Creek Cleanup.
