Welcome to Friends of Pleasant Hill Creeks






What is FOPHC?

Friends of Pleasant Hill Creeks is a group of concerned people who work together to promote clean, healthy creeks for the enjoyment of all. Our goal is for our creeks serve as habitat for native wildlife and a showcase for native plant species. We are located in the city of Pleasant Hill, central Contra Costa County, California.


We have undertaken a long-term project to remove invasive plant species from Ellinwood Creek. We meet every Saturday morning from 9 to 11 at varying locations along Ellinwood Creek. We also sponsor other activities, such as workshops and larger clean-up events. If you would like to help, please contact us.

On Earth Day, Saturday April 19, Friends of Pleasant Hill Creeks will host a larger creek clean-up event. We will spend some time at our next two meetings planning for this event.


We meet the first Wednesday of alternate months to discuss creek related issues and to plan events. In April and June we will meet on the second Wednesday due to room scheduling conflicts.

Our next meeting is at 7 pm on April 9, 2008 in the large conference room of Pleasant Hill City Hall, 100 Gregory Lane (map). Our speaker will be Brian Murphy of the Mount Diablo Audubon Society and Walnut Creek Open Space Foundation. Brian will talk about his many encounters with wildlife within the Diablo Valley area.

You are welcome to attend.
