Lend the land a helping hand with a creek clean-up and exploration of Paulin Creek.  Located in the middle of urban Santa Rosa, Paulin Creek Open Space Preserve is nine acres full of native oaks, madrone trees, and beautiful grasslands. We will start our day with a short hike, and then partake in some activities that will aid in reducing erosion, improving water quality, and make the habitat more suitable for the flora and fauna that call the creek home. People of all ages are welcome to join us in the restoration of this wildlife corridor.
