Join BCLT for our first volunteer event of 2014!  Help restore Alpine's watershed by planting native trees and shrubs, such as willow, cottonwoods, and sycamores, along this once-beautiful stretch of creek. Located below the confluence of Alpine, Chocolate, and Deer Creeks, this open-space riparian habitat is an important corridor for wildlife movement through Alpine and Harbison Canyon to Peutz Valley and El Capitan Reservoir.  

As part of our Watershed Stewardship Program in Alpine, Back Country Land Trust has cleared over one-quarter of an acre of flammable, non-native Arundo from this property at the "bottom" of Alpine's watershed.  Now we're ready to restore this creek-side habitat to it's former natural beauty!  

Come lend a hand and help keep Alpine's watershed clean & green!  

Saturday, February 1st: 10am-12noon

288 Peutz Valley Road - Parking available at Alpine Blvd & Peutz Valley Rd

Event Update: In two hours, our small team of three planted 30 native trees and 400 cuttings along this stretch of creek!  We also hauled away two truckloads of trash, including 6 tires, 4 tire sidewalls, a toilet, and a stolen ATM (which was turned in to police for evidence).  Special thanks to Endangered Habitats Conservancy for partnering with us on this imporant wildlife and habitat enhancement project.
