Big Day of Giving, May 2, 2019


What is the Big Day of Giving?

The Sacramento Region Community Foundation’s Big Day of Giving is an annual 24-hour giving challenge to help more than 600 local nonprofits raise funds to make a difference in the Sacramento region.  

Your donation on May 2 helps the Cache Creek Conservancy in realizing its vision of making the Cache Creek watershed a place where  native species thrive while people learn about and appreciate the outdoors. 

How Can I Help?


You can donate to Cache Creek Conservancy by visiting  https://www.bigdayofgiving.org/cachecreekconservancy on Thursday, May 2, and making a gift with a credit or debit card. Donations as little as $15 make a big difference, and your gifts can help us win some of the $100,000 in prizes that are up for grabs! 

Starting Monday, April 15, you can schedule your gift in advance of Big Day of Giving if that works better for you.


 Rally your networks to   give during Big Day of Giving with a fundraising campaign! Starting April 8, click the “Create a Campaign” button on Cache Creek Conservancy’s profile at https://www.bigdayofgiving.org/cachecreekconservancy and build a personal campaign to encourage your friends to give too. Share the link with your friends and family, so their gifts contribute to your campaign!


Use your social media networks or email to share your love of the Cache Creek Conservancy and Nature Preserve. Let your networks know that you support our cause by sharing our posts on your social media accounts, or by creating and sharing a fundraising campaign. A good word from a donor like you is the most meaningful way for us to spread our mission!

Are you interested in better health, less stress, and a sense of purpose?

If so, you might be interested to learn that these are among the benefits of volunteering: longevity, meaningfulness, functional ability, new skills, fun, and community connection. Research shows that the more you volunteer, the more benefit you get.

The ideal volunteer time-to-benefit ratio: two hours a week.

The Cache Creek Conservancy wants to help you get these benefits. Click on the button below to find out more!

New Project Underway


Wetland Work

We've started work on the North American Wetland Conservation Act (NAWCA) project.  The goal it to re-shape the wetlands to provide better habitat for water dependent species.  The project will benefit the Tricolored Blackbirds, Wood Ducks, and Giant Garder Snakes. This is part of a US Fish and Wildlife Service grant of $117,000.  

Three of the 10 islands have been reshaped and are now home to nesting Canada Geese. We still will be reshaping the remaining 7 islands after the waterfowl breeding season. Between March and May our wetlands will be the home to many migratory birds. Please come out to take pictures of our feathery visitors and share them on social media.  

For a more behind the scenes observation on the projects of the preserve, read our Habitat Restoration Managers Blog "Where the Wildlands Are". Click on the link below to find out more.
