Learn about the history of water management in Alameda Creek, look at some of the barriers to fish migration that we're working to remove, and discuss some fish-friendly improvement that have already been accomplished. As we approach Niles Canyon, we'll see the creek abruptly change from an engineered flood control channel to a creek with natural banks and native vegetation. We're likely to see waterfowl in Alameda Creek, and if we're really lucky we may even see some migrating steelhead trout! Led by Ralph Boniello from the Alameda Creek Alliance and Nik Bertulis.
We'll walk along the mostly-level Alameda Creek Trail for a round-trip of approximately 7 miles. Bring a water bottle and layers for potentially changing weather. 10-minute bicycle ride from the Union City Bart Station.
Please bring snacks, a water bottle, warm layers, & drinking water. Wear hiking boots and dress for rain.
