Restoration & Conservation

Colgan Creek Restoration

It’s official: Colgan Creek restoration planting is complete! The City of Santa Rosa recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of Phase 2 of a three phase restoration project on Colgan Creek.

Our plants are still small, but similarly sized plantings in Phase 1, which was completed in 2014, are now providing shade, and people are already hiking, jogging and cycling along this great community resource as they enjoy the natural world surrounding them.

We will be out there all summer watering and weeding around our young plants to make sure they get well established.
