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.

This group was well supplied with clean up tools and ensured the safety of volunteers despite a full Creek after a rainstorm and numerous homeless encampments in the park. I would volunteer with them again.
