As stewards of the Sausal Creek Watershed, we conduct and sponsor a variety of programs aimed at enhancing and maintaining the natural ecosystem. The majority of our volunteer members are involved in habitat restoration work on any of a dozen restoration sites. The work principally involves cutting or pulling nonnative plants and replacing them with plants native to the watershed. The plants we use are grown, mostly from seed, in our own native plant nursery. We also monitor water quality in Sausal Creek, as well as the native rainbow trout population and birds that inhabit and migrate through the area. Finally, we conduct educational programs for students from kindergarten through high school that involve in-class instruction in local ecology and field trips to the nursery and restoration sites.
