Friends of the Creeks

In 1991 the City Council appointed a task force to create a master plan for the enhancement of the creeks in the downtown area. Following adoption of the plan in 1993, the task force members decided to incorporate as a nonprofit organization, Friends of the Creeks, to work with the City of Walnut Creek to implement the plan they had developed. Over time, Friends of the Creeks’ vision of this partnership has extended to removing arundo and other invasive exotic plants from the creeks. They have moved beyond the downtown creeks to helping neighborhoods in various parts of the city with creek issues and to advocating for creeks in new development projects and in the City’s General Plan.
