CREEC can only carry out its important programs with the help of partners and friends. Many thanks to everyone who contributes resources or time to make all these wonderful things possible.
C&H Sugar/ASR. In 2021, C&H Sugar/ASR has provided funds for CREEC to continue its student- and volunteer-led effort to restore coast live oak forest and other native trees to the area under the Carquinez Bridge. Every little bit of habitat counts, and these plantings will grow to provide habitat for wildlife and aesthetic value for many years to come.
Phillips 66. In 2021, Phillips 66 has provided support to CREEC and the Contra Costa Resource Conservation District to institute a new onsite education program for middle school students. They have also funded native oak woodland plantings and contributed to the Lavender Hill super-bloom projects to be completed near the Carquinez Bridge.
Crockett Community Foundation. In 2020 and 2021, the Crockett Community Foundation has funded irrigation system improvements and greenhouse improvements to make the CREEC nursery more functional and environmentally efficient. It has also funded an environmental assessment of the Carquinez Waterfront as part of a community-wide effort to develop it into an open space where the community can gather.
Contra Costa Resource Conservation District (CCRCD). CREEC and the CCRCD partner on many projects and activities including tree plantings, shoreline cleanups, and grants. CREEC and the CCRCD are currently developing an environmental education curriculum that will teach students about their local environment and how to sustain it.
