A people's history of the Cache Creek Nature Preserve.

Restore/Restory logo Copyrighted image Icon Copyright: Restore/Restory Restore/Restory describes itself as a project that "explores the history of the Cache Creek Nature Preserve through the voices, views, images and experiences of a wide range of Yolo County residents. The project involved over 200 people in a collaborative effort to chronicle our diverse and changing demographics, traditions, and relationships with the land".

It was initiated by artists & cultural organisations, a non-governmental organisation/charity, and researchers, scientists & educators and encourages people to participate through an online platform and storytelling. Restore/Restory is local in orientation and concerned with environment & sustainability and neighbourhood & community.

The project began in autumn 2010 and and the project website was launched in October 2012.

This page is part of Participation Now, a project that brings together a diverse collection of participatory public engagement initiatives with the aim of supporting exploration, learning and engagement. Explore the collection of initiatives or read more about the project.
