Help Restore Berkeley's only Steelhead Creek
Sunday, 10 October, 2010 - 10:00 - 12:30
Steelhead, salmon, and other fish that need cold water and food-rich oceans have been hard hit by many aspects of civilization, and will be further devastated by global climate change.
Berkeley, California, has only one creek with a steelhead population -- Codornices Creek, on the Berkeley-Albany border. This work party will focus on improving habitat along the creek. Participants also will tour restoration areas ranging from a reach where the creek was freed from a culvert 14 years ago to one where heavy equipment is digging a new channel now. We'll discuss how global climate change threatens cold-water fish, California's amazing variety of native plants, and other species.
Tools, gloves, water, and snacks provided. All ages welcome.
