Friends of Outlet Creek
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.
Mendocino County Resource Conservation District
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.
BATS NEED AGAVE
Native to the hot and arid regions of the Southwestern United States, Mexico, and South America, agaves spend their lives building up sugars for the moment when they send a massive flowering stalk up into the sky. This flowering stalk serves as an essential food source for hungry migrating bats, including the binationally endangered Mexican long-nosed bat and the lesser long-nosed bat. These bats will follow the agave bloom northward, where they will give birth to their young.
