Carquinez Bridge from Edwards Creek
The CREEC Youth Program is dedicated to environmental improvement in the Carquinez Strait region. Students participate in habitat restoration, native and butterfly plant propagation, and butterfly rearing and release. Participants earn a stipend for their participation, after completing 10 volunteer hours. The program started in 1998 and initially included five students for a 10-week summer project. It has expanded to a year-round opportunity for youth to earn while they learn by improving the surrounding community and open space. Tasks are designed to create a hands-on learning experience in environmental restoration, basic horticulture, environmental science, non-profit management, and basic work skills.
