Volunteer With the Alameda Creek Alliance

Contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Ralph Boniello at Ralph AT alamedacreek DOT org

Become An Alameda Creek StreamKeeper:
Adopt a section of Alameda Creek to help us monitor fish populations and stream habitat. You can help monitor fish spawning and rearing areas, identify problems with fish passage, and document problems with water quality, pollution, dumping, poaching or habitat destruction. StreamKeepers can also be trained as docents to provide information to the public on fish and wildlife and natural values of the creek. Learn more about our StreamKeeper program.

Sign Up for Alameda Creek Fish Rescue:
If you want to participate in steelhead trout rescues and monitoring this winter at the BART drop structure (including removing them from the water, handling, transporting or re-releasing), you need to be on the permit from CA Fish and Game. Send an e-mail with your name, address, phone number, and CA driver’s license number for the permit. The Alameda County Flood Control District and East Bay Regional Park District will coordinate all fish rescues.

Teachers and Volunteers Wanted for Trout in the Classroom Program:

The Alameda Creek Alliance sponsors a Trout in the Classroom program to provide a unique learning experience for students attending schools within the Alameda Creek watershed. Students are given the opportunity to witness rainbow trout hatching right before their eyes in a special aquarium located in their very own classroom.

Join the BioBlitz in the Alameda Creek Watershed:

A BioBlitz is a rapid survey of the biodiversity of an ecosystem, a unique combination of taxonomic inventory, public outreach, and science education. Our BioBlitzes will team professional scientists and naturalists with community members to discover, map and learn about the living creatures in the Alameda Creek watershed. We will search for and record plants, fish, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds, insects and more. Our first BioBlitz will be in the Sunol area in March of 2014. Find out more on our BioBlitz web page.
