May CreekSpeak: Lower Putah Creek Restoration Planning
Join Putah Creek Council's first CreekSpeak talk of 2018 on May 17, 2018.
In 2016, Putah Creek Council and partner organizations received funds from California’s Proposition 1 to
develop conceptual restoration plans for multiple sites along Putah Creek. At this event, members of the planning committee – led by Kent Anderson, Putah Creek Council Executive Director – will provide insight into the planning process, what some of the sites might look like, and how the creek will benefit from these projects.
The presentation begins at 7pm at the Winters Community Library Margaret Parsons Room (708 Railroad Ave, Winters). In addition to Kent Anderson, planning committee members Marc Hoshovsky, a local ecologist; Melanie Truan, a wildlife researcher with UC Davis; Eric Larsen, a local hydrologist; and Putah Creek Streamkeeper Rich Marovich will be present to contribute to the discussion. The planning committee has been working together with community members to gather input on priorities for restoration projects, weight the proposed sites and designs, and produce shovel-ready project plans.
CreekSpeak is Putah Creek Council's six-month series of community talks about the nature, culture, and history of our region. 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.
