Wildlife needs our help. Human activity has changed and eliminated habitat, locally, and on the global scale, and birds, butterflies and other wildlife are pushed into ever-shrinking wilderness areas.
You can make a difference. You can invite wildlife back to your own yard and neighborhood by planting a simple garden that provides habitat. Imagine your garden teeming with singing songbirds, colorful butterflies, flitting hummingbirds, and other small wildlife.
The Collaborative Network provides structure for addressing local ocean management needs.
Their Mission: Facilitating the evolution of local collaboratives for effective, transparent, grassroots stewardship of California’s marine protected areas.
We are a community of neighbors and other dedicated folks united to protect Outlet Creek and it’s fragile environment from industrial pollution. We seek to maintain and improve the creek and its watershed as a viable habitat for riparian wildlife AND to protect the health of the area’s human residents. Outlet Creek is located in Mendocino County, California and begins its twenty plus mile journey in the north end of Little Lake Valley near the town of Willits.
The Mendocino County Resource Conservation District (MCRCD) is a non regulatory, local agency supporting voluntary stewardship of natural resources on wild and working landscapes.
The UC Hopland Research & Extension Center
is a multi-disciplinary research and education facility in California’s north coast region. Celebrating our 60th anniversary during 2011, we are stewards of more than 5,300 acres of oak woodland, grassland, chaparral, and riparian environments.
Our mission is through science to find better ways to manage our natural resources and conduct sustainable agricultural practices, for the benefit of California’s citizens. Field experiments and demonstrations conducted here since 1951 have led to more than 1,400 publications in animal science, entomology, plant ecology, public health, watershed management, and wildlife biology.
In the face of accelerating environmental change, and with a growing number of children spending much of their time indoors and “connected to” various electronic devices, it is becoming more and more important for children to have the opportunity to learn about their relationship to and their place in the natural world. Every year, hundreds of Ukiah Unified School District students participate in the Redwood Valley Outdoor Education Program and begin to build a better understanding of that essential connection.
