Friends of Sausal Creek works to restore, maintain, and protect the Sausal Creek Watershed. We educate future generations, involve the community in local environmental stewardship, and collaborate with agencies and other nonprofits to have a positive impact on the local ecosystem.
Our workdays at a dozen active restoration sites draw more than 4,000 volunteers a year. Our native plant nursery supplies thousands of plants for our restoration efforts. We monitor bird and animal life and the water quality in Sausal Creek to assess the health of the watershed. We also conduct field trips for K-12 students to train the next generation of environmental stewards.
Your donations are our lifeblood. Not only do they pay for critical tools, supplies, and utilities, they help pay our staff—the professionals who organize and manage our programs. Our executive director, restoration and nursery manager, and education and outreach coordinator are the people who lead many of our workdays, keep the nursery running, communicate with and recruit volunteers, act as liaisons to government agencies and foundations, file our tax returns, and do the hundreds of routine daily tasks that are indispensable to any organization. Their salaries are typically not covered by outside grants, so we rely on you for this critical support.
We’re a grassroots, community-based organization with very little administrative overhead and a grand vision for the watershed. And we need your financial support. Best of all, there are multiple ways to give based on your financial situation.
