Homeless Encampments

Urban creeks and rivers throughout Butte County have become increasingly used for homeless encampments and choked with invasive plant species, resulting in a weed and garbage problem that seems to be spiraling out of control. Tackling this problem is intimidating for everyone, but when we get together, urban waterways can once again be the beautiful neighborhood creeks and wildlife habitats and corridors that they once were.  

If the encampment is within the City of Chico limits, please report your concern using the City of Chico form.  If the encampment is on county unincorporated land, please use the Butte County form.  If you are unsure, please use this map to determine the jurisdiction of the area in question.
