Welcome

The Elder Creek Center For The Land is a watershed restoration and transition organization working in the Nomlaki homeland of California’s northern Sacramento Valley. We aim to expand the use of land care practices in the Elder Creek watershed that could return the creek to its formerly reliable year-round flow. These practices also enhance the health of native plant and animal communities, which are the foundation of a genuinely sustainable human culture in this region. Integral to this work, we are exploring and demonstrating regenerative subsistence skills appropriate for living in place. Many of the practices that we recommend below have already been implemented on our land, so if you would like to walk through what we've done or talk about how these practices could be implemented on your land, please contact us.
