We are a 27-acre, 501(c)3 non-profit nature preserve that is run entirely by volunteers. One of our primary goals is to protect and restore the natural beauty of Clear Creek in Redding, CA. We offer a variety of day-use activities like hiking and picnicking, as well as free interpretive events in the spring and fall. We hope you enjoy your visit!
