Butte Creek Ecological Preserve

The Butte Creek Ecological Preserve was transferred to the Mechoopda Indian Tribe of Chico Rancheria on September 23, 2023.

Though the Mechoopda Indian Tribe is the new owner of the property, the Big Chico Creek Ecological Reserve (BCCER) will continue to handle reservations for research and field trips to the BCEP for the time being. This website is being maintained for archival purposes.
