Hydrologist Rachel Kamman will lead this hike to discuss the Gallinas Watershed / Miller Creek Redirection / McInnis Marsh Restoration Project. Rachel will lead us up the hill at McInnis Park where we will see how Miller Creek comes from Lucas Valley through St Vincents property. McInnis Creek is channeled to LGVSD, takes a 90 degree turn, and flows out to San Pablo bay. Along the way there is another 90 degree turn as well as two LGVSD sewage outfalls.
We will also study the wetlands south of LGVSD and Gallinas Creek where County and LGVSD are planning to redirect Miller Creek.
Everyone is welcome:
Kids – Great!
Dogs – sure, well behaved and on leash please since we are walking as a group. Be ready to pick up after rover!
Bring binoculars – you might spot an unusual bird – maybe even a Clapper Rail.
