Second Sundays are Work-n-Play Days

The second Sunday of each month throughout the year is reserved for Work-n-Play Days. CCaWW members and volunteers meet at a designated location and carpool to the land. We care for the land by maintaining the natural environment. Time is spent removing non-native invasive species like italian thistle, beggars lice, Himalayas blackberries, and ailanthus trees. Native species like sedges, grasses, tubers, corms, and rhizomes are planted and tended. We have many plants utilized for basket weaving, and medicine. Second Sunday Work-n-Play Days are spent supporting these activites and are followed with lunch by the river and an informative exploration of the surrounding area. Your welcome to email us at or from the contact page for more information.

Teachers Training


July 29 & 30 We host our annual teachers training. Teachers are immersed in local California culture offering authentic knowledge. This shared knowledge enables teachers to educate our youth more accurately when teaching students about Native American Culture. Over the course of two days we create a walnut dice game, a pine nut necklace, and a rawhide rattle. We discuss our relationship with the natural resources utilized to make these items. In turn teachers will be given a curriculum binder and create a teaching plan to share with their students. Teachers will experience a deeper connection to the land and feel more empowered to teach others about native culture. Inspiring a passion to learn.

Early registration $50. After June 24 $100. For registration information contact us at
