The Strawberry Creek Fund supports the restoration of Strawberry Creek
and its watershed through habitat and water quality improvements,
including monitoring, education, and direct program and project implementation.
Each year more than 3,000 UC Berkeley undergraduates take courses,
ranging from biology to engineering, in which the creek plays a central
role. Countless community school groups also visit the campus and
use the creek as an outdoor teaching tool. Beyond its role in education,
Strawberry Creek is a resource valued by the entire campus community.
By giving to the Strawberry Creek fund, you are helping to advance
Strawberry Creek’s educational and research potential as well
as contributing to an ongoing restoration program that began in
1987. Please browse the Strawberry Creek website
to gain a better understanding of the progress that has been made
to restore and enhance this invaluable and beautiful resource, as
well as the challenges and opportunities that still await.
