Mission Statement

South Bay Clean Creeks Coalition (formerly Friends of Los Gatos Creek) is a non-profit (501 c3) volunteer based group focused on the preservation of the watershed in Santa Clara County. We are focused on The Los Gatos and Guadalupe River. Activities to include creek cleanups, habitat restoration and reviving the Salmon and Steelhead populations with supported, scientific data.

Description

South Bay Clean Creeks Coalition (formerly Friends of Los Gatos Creek) has established partnerships with the associated agencies allowing us the ability to hold regular cleanups along the creek from Lexington Reservior to the confluence with the Guadalupe River. Future plans will see our group developing programs with local schools on proper stewardship of this resource through cleanups, education & vegetation management. A larger scale effort will be rolled out addressing non-native plants and their removal.

Would you recommend South Bay Clean Creeks Coalition (Formerly Friends of Los Gatos Creek)?

by Phil H. (October 2, 2014)
FOLGC cleans trash out of Los Gatos and Guadalupe Creeks and is working toward the day that the creeks are clean and healthy for wildlife and humans. The group has removed 75 tons of trash in 18 months and been instrumental in getting competing government agencies (city, county, water district, caltrans) to live up to their legal responsibilities in areas where they have jurisdiction over the creeks. They have helped remove all of the homeless encampments from many sections of the creek and been a forceful voice for getting cities to address the plight of the homeless in a more humane way than letting them live on creekbeds in extremely dangerous conditions while fouling the environment.
