Cottonwood Creek Collaborative

About Us

  • The Cottonwood Creek watershed lies within both Tehama and Shasta counties. To better serve the needs and concerns of landowners and the public within the watershed, the Cottonwood Creek Collaborative was established as a partnership between the Resource Conservation District of Tehama County (RCD-TC) and the Western Shasta Resource Conservation District (WSRCD) to expand awareness of and collaboration in environmental improvement and natural resource conservation projects related to the watershed's natural resources including riparian habitat health, ecosystem health, and water quality and quantity. In addition, the collaborative provides access to information about the Cottonwood Creek Watershed for landowners, residents, and the community at large. The collaborative welcomes input and participation from the Cottonwood Creek watershed community. This website serves as a resource for the community to obtain information about the watershed and stay informed about current projects, upcoming workshops, meetings, and other watershed related events. Have a concern about an issue in the watershed? Have an idea for a project you want to see implemented? Contact us!
