  • Creek Cleanups

    Several times a year, BCR arranges a creek or wetlands cleanup, along with partners such as other organizations or public agencies.

  • Native Plant Gardens

    Native California plants, especially those suited to the location you’re going to plant them, need far less water than all those plants with huge, gorgeous flowers and high-maintenance grassy lawns.
