We are dedicated to the restoration and preservation of the Cache Creek watershed in Northern California. It is also part of our mandate to educate the public and students about conservation and the environment. The focus of the Conservancy’s work has been riparian restoration along a fourteen mile stretch of the Lower Cache Creek. We operate from and manage the Jan T. Lowrey Cache Creek Nature Preserve, which is often called the ‘Cache Creek Nature Preserve'.
