Water Warriors

Join us in removing invasive plants from Bidwell Park. 

Spend your morning making a difference 



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 invasive, 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 June 23rd from 9am-11am. Meet behind the CARD Center at the end of Vallombrosa Way. We will be removing vegetation in Bidwell Park along Big Chico Creek. Remember to wear closed toed shoes and bring your refillable water bottles. For more information call (530) 891-6424 or email
