Partnership Goals

  • 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.

2023-2024 Season Recap

Another year of habitat enhancement and restoration with the Yolo Creek and Community Partnership (YCCP) is in the books! Thanks to the generous support of the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, the RCD and its partners installed over 7,000 feet of hedgerows along farm field edges this season – that’s over a mile and a half of habitat for birds, pollinators, and other wildlife!

Thank you to all the high school students and volunteers for another successful planting season and for helping create habitat that will support wildlife and biodiversity!

The Yolo Creek and Community Partnership is generously funded by the Yocha Dehe Community Fund
