See Melissa's entry for the great metrics of all the students educated, the volunteers, the stewardship, etc., etc for Putah Creek Council (PCC). This nonprofit has tremendous local outreach! And for me, that's what it's all about. The people CARE; both those who work for PCC and those who volunteer. They care about the creek. They care about sharing their love of the creek. They care about sharing their knowledge and excitement of this wonderful, local outdoor resource with so many local schoolchildren! They care about leading many and varied volunteer restoration and creek-cleanup efforts that involve multiple towns and counties.Yes, PCC is all about the creek, the restoration, the returning salmon, and education.....but mostly it is about the people!

PCC is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, and has been recognized by the local counties and cities that it serves. Gets bigger and better every year now with education programs serving most students in the local communities and more than one creek stewardship activity per week throughout the year. The future looks bright with a major planning grant underway to develop a long-term strategy for restoration work.

Putah Creek Council (PCC) is an excellent environmental stewardship and education non-profit. PCC runs several different education programs including Salmon-in-the-Classroom, an after school Putah Creek Club, and CreekSpeak. These and other PCC programs reached approximately 1,888 elementary and secondary students in 2017. PCC also had 57 community volunteer events in 2017, put on by over 550 Stewardship Team members. Some of the community stewardship events include litter cleanups along the creek and local waterways, running a native plant nursery to supply plants for PCC's creek restoration projects, and providing guided nature tours to the public. PCC was also responsible for the litigation 30 years ago to provide water in Putah Creek, which has allowed salmon to return to this area for annual spawning.
