SPAWNERS leads habitat restoration and creek cleanup events at multiple sites throughout the year.
Our work parties are on 3rd Saturdays from 9:30am-12:00pm, and rotate between the sites listed below. We are passionate about restoring native plant habitat and making these spaces natural and welcoming to the community! All are welcome at our events, and no experience is necessary. Please wear sturdy shoes and work clothes, and we will provide tools, gloves, and refreshments.
San Pablo Creek site
Behind the El Sobrante Library, 4191 Appian Way in El Sobrante
In 2000, community members came together on Earth Day to remove trash and debris from the creek and banks behind the El Sobrante Library. Since then, our work has yielded a native plant demonstration garden, a community mural, four interpretive signs, and restored habitat on the lower creek bank and upper terrace.
Wilkie Creek site
Next to 4805 Santa Rita Road in Richmond
SPAWNERS began restoring this site in 2009, working with students from De Anza High School, Sheldon Elementary School, Earth Team, and the Eagle Scouts. The site includes an outdoor classroom surrounded by native plants and trees, and an interpretive sign.
