November 16 Alameda Creek Cleanup
Join the Alameda Creek Alliance on Sunday, November 16th at our adopted site along Alameda Creek, from 10 am to noon at the Niles Staging Area in Fremont. We'll remove invasive plants and pick up trash along Alameda Creek, and discuss how these efforts protect and enhance fish and wildlife habitat. Thanks to all who have helped so far- we've made great progress on ivy removal, but there is more to be done!
Well meet at the Niles Staging Area parking lot along Old Canyon Road at Canyon Oaks Court in the Niles area of Fremont. Wear work clothes, including long pants and sturdy shoes that can get dirty. A long-sleeve shirt and hat are recommended. Well provide gloves, waste bags, litter grabbers, water, and a snack. Please bring your own re-usable water bottle to fill. RSVP to Ralph Boniello at Ralph@alamedacreek.org.
December 19 Eastern Alameda Christmas Bird Count
Join the Alameda Creek Alliance and Ohlone Audubon Society on Friday, December 19, for the 6th annual Eastern Alameda County Christmas Bird Count, in the upper Alameda Creek watershed.
The count circle is in the vicinity of the towns of Sunol, Pleasanton and Livermore, and includes five East Bay Regional Parks, significant SFPUC watershed lands, and exciting East Bay birding hotspots such as lower Mines Road, Sunol Wilderness, Calaveras Reservoir, Lawrence Livermore National Lab, Sycamore Grove Park and Springtown Preserve. Birders and volunteers with any level of experience can participate in the Christmas Bird Count. The count is coordinated with the East Bay Regional Park District, San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, Livermore Area Recreation & Park District, and Lawrence Livermore National Lab, to provide maximum access to significant bird habitats within the count circle.
Please join us for the bird count. You will have a chance to sample the bird life in several interesting habitats that fit a variety of interests and abilities. You'll be contributing to the Audubon database and knowledge of the status and distribution of resident and visiting winter birds and have fun doing it.
