Update (6/24/2019): Thank you to everyone who made our campaign a success! We raised $15,136 that will help complete our study of rainbow trout, analyze 15 years of bird monitoring data, help ensure the survival of the endangered pallid manzanita, and hire more interns to support our education program.


Update (6/21/19): ​Thank you to all of our donors who have supported our campaign so far. If you haven't donated yet, please help us continue to move toward our goal of $20,000 before the end of today!

Help us reach our Solstice Challenge goal of $20,000 by June 21 to fund these critical restoration and education activities!

  • Complete our study of the native rainbow trout in Sausal Creek and implement a long-term conservation and management plan

  • Analyze 15 years of bird monitoring data to help identify the effects of habitat restoration, urbanization, and climate change on local bird populations

  • Help ensure the survival of the endangered pallid manzanita, a plant endemic to the East Bay that FOSC has been shepherding back from the brink

  • Hire more education interns so FOSC can expand its education program and field trips to underserved Oakland students

  • Furnish 23 sites in the watershed with native plants from the FOSC Native Plant Nursery. We cultivate over 6,000 local watershed natives per year and educate the community on the benefits of native species.


Our vision is a healthy riparian greenway from the hills to the bay where people, plant, and animal inhabitants can thrive. This requires steadfast advocacy and action over the long term—it’s a marathon not a sprint!
