Water Warriors

Come help us restore our urban water ways! Let's make those creeks shine! 



Butte Environmental Council is happy to announce our newest program, Water Warriors. In partnership with the City of Chico and their adopt-a-spot program, BEC has adopted two locations to restore. We will focus on removal of invasives, replacing with natives, bank stabilization, and creating usable natural space for the public. We have adopted two spots, Teichert Ponds and the area of Bidwell Park from the CARD center to Mangrove. In the first phase of the program we are focusing and clearing any vegetation blocking the line of sight from the road to the water.

Join us for our volunteer day on September 30th from 9am-11am. Meet behind Kohl's for the first work day at Teichert Ponds. Remember wear closed toed shoes and bring your refillable water bottles. Register to volunteer here for more information cal (530) 891-6424 or email
