Friends of Pleasant Hill Creeks: LUW is helping Friends of Pleasant Hill Creeks on a restoration project in the Ellinwood Development area of Pleasant Hill. Ellinwood Creek, an old bend of Walnut Creek, is restricted by Hwy 680 on both ends. Flow is minimal and non-native invasive plant species have taken over the creek. This creek was once a spawning ground for Salmon and native plants and animals flourished here. Our goal with Friends of Pleasant Hill Creeks is to restore the creek to a level suitable for habitat of Urban wildlife. One day, we may be able to return salmon to this creek.
Visit the website and join the Friends of Pleasant Hill Creeks mailing list. Members of the mailing list will recieve information by e-mail on creek related items.
Meetings are the first Wednesday of even months at 7 PM...

The Cannonball Express: a video project dedicated to disaster prevention and bringing neighborhoods together.
The Video Project Committee produces half hour video to educate, entertain, and motivate people living in the suburban wildlands interface zone on the subjects of suburban forest fires, fire safety, and the environment.
The purpose of the video project is to assist homeowners in preparing for disaster and so to assist fire professionals in preventing another massive fire like the 1991 fire storm in the Oakland-Berkeley hills, just as this kind of disaster becomes more and more common in California and elsewhere in the United States.
