March 31st, 2017 Marks the Sixth Anniversary of Friends of the Creek

Today marks our 6th anniversary as a 501c3 nonprofit, as we were established on March 31, 2011, in anticipation of Earth Day that year when we cleared the Nevada and Bridgeway Willow Grove site for the first time.   Since then, we’ve not looked back, taking advantage of the great opportunity we have to create stewardship of this Creek by the Willow Creek Academy public school and the local neighborhood.  We have planted over 3,500 plants, held over 20 cleanup events, and the site is enjoyed by the school and community more than ever.  And the creek just keeps flowing along, 24/7/365.  Our original mission of daylighting the creek through the school and the City remains strong!!
