4 of 6: Changing a Channel, Changing a Community (CreekSpeak)
Join Putah Creek Council’s fourth CreekSpeak talk of 2012 on August 16, 2012.
The 7 PM talk at the Veterans Memorial Theater Club Room, 203 E 14th Street, Davis, will explain how the Putah Creek channel realignment project in Winters has benefitted the wildlife and human communities. CreekSpeak is Putah Creek Council’s six-month series of community talks about the nature, culture, and history of our region.
Rich Marovich, Putah Creek Streamkeeper, will explain the planning, process, and outcomes of a 1-mile long channel realignment project in Winters. This project narrowed the active flow channel of Putah Creek to enhance water quality and habitat for humans and wildlife.
Rich was recently named "Restorationist of the Year" by the Salmonid Restoration Foundation for his work on Putah Creek.
CreekSpeak talks are free to Putah Creek Council members and open to the public. A $5 donation is requested from those who have not-yet joined the Council.
Additonal CreekSpeak talks in 2012 will include: Fish, Farms, and Flooding in Yolo Bypass, Jacob Katz (September 20), and Putah Creek Water Quality, Mike Deas (October 18).
