Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful provides community leadership to bring related community groups and public agencies affiliated with Coyote Creek in Santa Clara County, California, to take action towards restoring the creek through cleanups and plantings, recreation and cultural activities, and educational partnerships.
Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful has been hosting cleanups in Coyote Creek since 2014, with over 3000 volunteer hours and 40 tons of trash removed in our first year. Working with our partners, we give people the opporutnity to make a difference by taking action towards restoring Coytoe Creek. This program is funded by a partnership grant from the City of San Jose and the Santa Clara Valley Water District.
Thinking cyclically about engaging the greater Coyote Creek community, people take care of the creek, which leads to gaining a further understanding of the creek, which leads to enjoyment and usage of the creek, which leads people back to caring for the creek. All these activities engage people to become the creek's advocates and caretakers.
