Today is Big Day of Giving—and Cache Creek Conservancy is striving toward our goal of raising $10,000 before midnight tonight! 

Your donations will help us:

  •  Build a Frog Pond and water fountain in the preserve’s Memorial Garden area – Right now there is no potable water at the Nature Preserve. We’ll need testing and filtering to install a much needed, public water fountain. We can then trench a little further to build a frog and bird pond. Estimated cost: $3,500
  • Remove invasive Blackberry shrubs in the Gordon Slough, followed by revegetation with the Center for Land Based Learning SLEWS kids – This project will help the local wildlife a lot! Estimated cost: $6,500
  • Keep providing our free educational and family fun outdoor events. – Anything over our $10k goal will go to our Public Outreach activities.

We have 24 hours to reach our goal. This year, you can give donations as little as $10! Donate before midnight tonight by visiting
