CREEC is a nonprofit organization based on the Carquinez Strait in Crockett, California. CREEC's goal is to help local youth restore the shores of the Carquinez Strait so the birds, plants, and animals that make this a special place can thrive alongside the recreational needs of residents and visitors. One of the main ways CREEC achieves this is by working with local students who help maintain CREEC’s greenhouse, grounds, and extensive collection of native plants.
CREEC's Youth Program teaches students from nearby communities how to be environmental stewards and how to propagate and grow native plants.
CREEC grows an impressive number of native California plant species, including many local natives. At CREEC, you can find native plants that are difficult to find elsewhere.
CREEC volunteers have planted dozens of native trees and shrubs along the Carquinez Strait, providing food and habitat for local wildlife.
CREEC partners with local schools, organizations, and governmental agencies to plant gardens and restore wildlife habitat.
