The Cache Creek Conservancy is a 501©3 non-profit organization founded in 1996 and dedicated to creek restoration, preservation, and education. The focus of the Conservancy’s work has been riparian restoration along a fourteen mile stretch of Cache Creek covered by Yolo County’s Cache Creek Resources Management Plan. The Conservancy also manages the Jan T. Lowrey Cache Creek Nature Preserve, a 130-acre complex of wetlands, oak woodlands, grasslands, and creek side lands. This serves as the site for our environmental education program in which approximately 2,500 elementary students per year participate in learning about the environment. This site also contains the Jan T. Lowrey Memorial Grove, which showcases California native plants and contains a small amphitheater; and the Tending and Gathering Garden, a collaborative effort with the Native American community to demonstrate native plants used in Native American cultural practices. The Conservancy is governed by a 15-member Board of Directors and has a 5-member staff.
