Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful

  • 4 people are interested
Come out and explore nature
All ages welcome to beautify Hellyer Park around Coyote Creek.

As a person who knows a lot about nature, you'll share your knowledge with small groups during BioBlitz events and nature walks. You can be paired with a specialist to foster additional knowledge in one (or in many cases all) of the following: wildlife of Coyote Creek and riparian corridor connectivity, intersection of people and watersheds, impact of homeless activity along the watershed, nature deficit impacts on humans, native and invasive riparian plants and restoration efforts. Time commitment varies by event, but is usually 3 hours. Events are held monthly, so you can choose what fits your schedule.

Please note, we take Covid-19 very seriously and have taken every measure to ensure the safety of our staff and volunteers.

Mission Statement

Our vision is a vibrant Coyote Creek: clean waters, abundant wildlife, and natural beauty that everyone can enjoy. We’re accomplishing this by both mobilizing community resources and participation, and by engaging community members to become the creek’s advocates and caretakers. Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful works with community groups, public agencies, and students to restore Coyote Creek through cleanups, plantings, recreational and cultural activities, and educational partnerships.

Description

Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful provides leadership to bring related community groups and public agencies affiliated with Coyote Creek. Primary funding is provided through a partnership grant from the City of San Jose and the Santa Clara Valley Water District.


Thinking cyclically about engaging the greater Coyote Creek community, people take care of the creek, which leads to gaining a further understanding of the creek, which leads to enjoyment and usage of the creek, which leads people back to caring for the creek. All these activities engage people to become the creek's advocates and caretakers.
