GOLD AWARD Project : Save Our Seas (SOS)

Gold Award Project

Have you heard about the garbage patch in the Pacific Ocean? Did you know this island of trash is harming our sea life and includes the Chinook Salmon that can be found right here in Auburn Ravine Creek? The trash in the ocean often originates from our local creeks.

I’m Buttercup, the Creek Geek and I’m here to help teach you about the importance of keeping our water healthy and clean.

Let’s do our part to protect our oceans and local creeks.

Come follow me on a journey along the Auburn Ravine Watershed to the San Francisco Bay.


Let’s see how we can help preserve Auburn Ravine Creek…

It is important to protect our local waters because it is a source of our drinking water, a place for recreation and Chinook Salmon habitat.

Come along with me as I share some important facts and figures about our local waterway and wildlife. Such as fish ladders and importance of Salmon in our local creeks. See how you can take part keeping our creeks clean.
