[ARCHIVED] Become a Creek Steward

creek stewardship volunteers - kids picking up trash

Creek Stewards provide a vital link between the community and the governments and agencies responsible for the protection and care of creeks.  Anyone who spends a little time along creeks can volunteer as a Creek Steward.  Ideally, Creek Stewards are able to keep and eye out for any creek needs or disturbances during their normal routines.

Besides having fun, Creek Stewards:

  • adopt and care for a specific reach of creek near their neighborhood, school, or business
  • receive background information on the condition and goals for Santa Rosa’s creeks
  • receive training to recognize and report conditions such as water pollution, habitat degradation, and unlawful activities
  • help maintain creek-side areas by picking up litter, removing non-native invasive plants, and caring for restoration areas
  • commit to monitoring and caring for their reach of creek
  • provide suggestions for the enhancement of creeks
  • alert the Program Coordinator, appropriate City department, or responsible agency to problems

Creek Stewards may represent neighborhoods, groups, businesses, or participate as individuals. Volunteers may choose to have signs posted acknowledging their contributions to the community.  A Program Coordinator assists Creek Stewards’ activities and expedites follow through on reports regarding trash removal, water quality, natural habitat, recreational opportunities, trail maintenance, neighborhood safety and other situations that arise.
