The Yolo Creek and Community Partnership is a wonderful example of regional collaboration to promote successful conservation. With a generous grant award from the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, the Yolo County Resource Conservation District, Center for Land-Based Learning, Putah Creek Council, and Point Blue Conservation Science have partnered together to
- Create healthy wildlife habitat on our working landscapes using best available science to achieve conservation outcomes and enhance resiliency to climate change, and
- Educate high school students and the public about our local environment and the benefits of restoring and enhancing our natural communities and ecosystems, and
- Involve students, community members and tribal citizens in hands-on environmental stewardship projects to give them experience working collectively to make a difference on the land and inspiring them to take action on environmental issues, and
- Conduct ecological monitoring to evaluate and improve projects.
