Alameda Creek Restoration Day January 21
Volunteer with the Alameda Creek Alliance for a morning of habitat restoration along Alameda Creek, on Saturday, January 21st, from 10 am to noon at Niles Staging Area in Fremont. We'll be clearing invasive plants, planting native shrubs and plants, and doing some general cleaning around our adopted restoration site. This continues past work by ACA volunteers, and your efforts will enhance habitat for fish and wildlife along Alameda Creek for years to come.
Meet at 10 am at the Niles Staging Area Parking lot along Old Canyon Road near Canyon Oaks Court in the Niles area of Fremont (roughly 720 Old Canyon Rd), and we'll work until noon. Visit our Eventbrite page for more information.
Please wear long pants and sturdy, closed-toe shoes that can get dirty (no sandals or flip-flops). We provide gloves and tools. The work isn't on much of a slope, but the ground can be uneven. The ground will likely be wet, so please wear clothes that can get dirty. There is no poison oak in the immediate area where we'll be working. Expect cool weather and morning dew when we start. Heavy rain cancels.
All participants need signed waiver forms (one for the ACA and one for Alameda County), and anyone under 18 needs a parental signature.
Get Involved in Monitoring Sinbad Creek in Sunol - January 25
The Alameda Creek Alliance is hosting a community meeting in Sunol to discuss upcoming creek monitoring efforts Sinbad Creek. Join us on Wednesday, January 25th in the cafeteria of the Sunol Glen School (11601 Main Street, Sunol) from 7:00 to 8:30 pm, to learn how you can participate in these efforts.
Our goal is to collect baseline information on Sinbad Creek, and to see how it is changing over time. Well discuss plans to map Sinbad Creek, monitor macroinvertebrates (i.e. insects) that live in the creek, monitor water temperature and flow of Sinbad Creek, measure bacteria in Sinbad Creek, and address concerns with invasive plants.
We need volunteers for these efforts! Join us on January 25th to add your voice to the discussion, and to learn how you can get involved.
