Long Time Coming: 16 Years’ Progress and Peril on Alameda Creek- Talk and Slide Show

Join Friends of Five Creeks this coming Monday, April 1, for this special presentation…
Jeff Miller, head of Alameda Creek Alliance, shows slides and recounts 16 years of adventures restoring Alameda Creek, from rescuing trapped steelhead to removing dams and stopping highways.

The East Bay’s largest watershed by far, Alameda Creek drains fully half the East Bay. Size makes it a potential haven for threatened creatures, including steelhead, that might not survive natural and human-caused upheavals in smaller areas. Challenges and opportunities abound: from pristine tributaries in wide grazing lands to big dams, flood-control channels, and the effects of funneling former huge marshes into the creek. Jeff doesn’t give a lot of talks — this is a real opportunity!
