Watershed Hike at the Bohemia Ecological Preserve Jan. 20th, 2018

Fee(s): No Cost - Standard, No Cost - Bohemia Docent or Corridor Volunteer
Description: Our watersheds, like the blood vessels in our bodies, channel life to the land and support our biosphere. Maintaining their integrity is critical to the success of the flora and fauna through which they flow. The watersheds of the Bohemia Ecological Preserve, Margaret’s Creek, Duvoul Creek and Grub Creek, flow together into Dutch Bill Creek and connect with the Russian River and Pacific Ocean. The watershed provides much needed spawning habitat for salmon and other aquatic creatures and nourishes a forest of diverse plant life. We will visit each of the 4 creeks on the Preserve and discuss their health, their unique contribution to the overall watershed and restoration plans and efforts currently underway. This is a rare opportunity to see Grub Creek and other areas of the Preserve not usually open to the public. More >>
