What's wrong with Bolin Creek? Why do we need to fix it? How will this plan remain fresh and helpful and not be something lost in the immensity of cyberspace or gather dust on a shelf?
This plan is the Bolin Creek Watershed Restoration Team’s attempt to shed light on these questions. At the same time, this plan can be viewed as much an inquiry for the reader as questions to be answered herein. One core concept is suggested. If this plan is to be of value, it will be because it is seen not as a mandate from government or a pontification from experts, but as an invitation to collective collaboration. If there is a second foundational idea, it is that there really is not a compromise or partial solution. The watershed behaves as a whole; its integrity and health therefore relies on holistic, comprehensive, synergistic, and integrated strategies, programs, projects, and actions. Readers are invited to determine what patch of the restoration quilt they can offer.
