Ecological and Environmental
2023 Winter Internship Applications Now Open
Ecological and Environmental Interns assist Conservancy staff with habitat restoration for native wildlife and plants within the nature preserve and other sites along the lower Cache Creek watershed.
This program is for students interested in learning the Cache Creek Wintun homeland ecology as well as how restoration and stewardship can re-create healthy water and soils.
Visit the Nature Preserve
The Cache Creek Nature Preserve is open to visitors every day except Saturday from 8 AM to 4 PM. Picnic near the old barn. Stroll along the boardwalk or hike the trails. Photograph wildlife and learn about ‘Detroit Riprap.’
Are you interested in better health, less stress, and a sense of purpose? Volunteering can provide these health benefits and more.
Our volunteer community consists of Individuals and small groups who are passionate about nature, the Cache Creek Watershed and hands-on experiences.
