As a regional leader in natural resource protection efforts, The Stream Team has significantly improved locally-led dialogue and coordination toward greater conservation of natural resources in the North State. The Stream Team provides opportunities for citizens, schools and community organizations to participate in restoring stream-side habitats, monitoring water quality and implementing Low Impact Development (LID) strategies that reduce water quality impacts associated with storm water runoff pollution.
Your support will help us: 1) maintain and replace water quality sampling equipment and supplies (calibration fluids), and laboratory costs; 2) provide supplies for Clean Water Science Ambassador Program in Butte County schools (native plants, rain gages, gloves, boots, field trips); 3) provide volunteer training and educational workshops; 4) support monthly water quality monitoring; 5) provide storm water education and outreach; and 6) prepare and manage water quality grants.
The Comanche Creek Greenway Improvement Project (adopted by the City Council and the Bidwell Park and Playground Commission in 2012) specifies recreational improvements, pedestrian and bike trails, and other amenities to support public use by surrounding neighborhoods and nearby business employees. The Comanche Creek Greenway Management Plan was also adopted in 2012 in order to support the City's intention of providing habitat, and public access to, the creek corridor. Our purpose is to help implement these City adopted plans and to supplement the $1M State Housing and Parks Related Grant awarded for capital improvements at CCG by providing volunteer labor and funds for those aspects of the plans that have been allocated little or no money.
Our Mission is to use education and entertainment to enlighten Californian citizens about the many benefits of creating a seamless and unified state-wide network of non-motorized trails. Our first step was helping pass Senate Joint Resolution No. 8, Chapter 146, (SJR-8), 2017 requesting the Governor to designate creation of the California Non-motorized Trails Master Plan.
Our goal is to provide a results oriented dialog to help gain knowledge and insight into our evolving Biomass challenge. By exploring alternative mitigation and reduction strategies via practicum, we strive to educate the next generation.
