Creek Restoration Project Continues in Civic Park
For our September 10 workday, we'll weed around our new plants and water if necessary. We'll also remove some nearby invasive weeds. No experience is required -- just a desire to make the creek a better place for both humans and wildlife. Join us for some rewarding work, camaraderie, and a brief talk about an aspect of the work we're doing.

Save the Date for Salmon!
On Wednesday, October 12 we and the rest of the Walnut Creek Watershed Council will be hosting an evening meeting on the state of salmon in our watershed. The EBRPD mobile fish tank will be outside and speakers will inform us about the status of salmon around the Bay Area. We will have a brief update about the status of salmon in our watershed and an action item. We will post details as soon as they are finalized.
Help the Creeks on CSD -- Oct 8
Friends of the Creeks will be sponsoring three projects on Community Service Day this year -- two cleanups on Pine Creek, and for the more restoration minded, ivy removal in San Ramon Creek near Creekside Drive downtown. Sign up here.
In August, volunteers propagated native grasses for our winter restoration project on Civic Park's Creekwalk.
