City of Chico staff, Butte Environmental Council (BEC) and Chico Tree Advocates have joined forces to identify areas where the forest canopy needs a hand.

Chico News & Review - Love for the creek - Sustainability - Green - November 16, 2017 - 0 views

  • The group started small in hopes of eventually making a large impact, initially choosing two areas of focus—Teichert Ponds, between Highway 32 and East 20th Street along Highway 99; and the area behind the CARD Center. The plan is to clear out invasive plants and replace them with native species.

    The group is working toward its goal with the backing of a city program called Adopt a Spot, which encourages community involvement in the park by providing resources such as tools, volunteer help and a management plan.

  • Water Warriors relies mostly on volunteers, donations and partnerships like the one with the city.
  • In its short existence, the group is already making strides. The work behind the CARD Center in particular is visible and already paying off.
