OAKLAND/SAN LEANDRO CREEK
WATERSHED TOUR
July 7th, 2019 ~ 3.5 hrs

San Leandro Creek stands out as an especially daylighted and protected creek in the East Bay, outflowing near Oakland Airport through one of the Bay’s last remaining marshes, meandering across urban flatlands which still draw from its local drinking water supply, pouring through Lake Chabot and the Upper San Leandro Reservoir, and beginning as trickling tributaries in Canyon and Moraga.

Josh recently moved to Moraga, and at the end of the trip he might invite you over for lunch.

Nearby Neighborly Flows:

EAST BAY:

Some of our favorite tours have followed neighborhood East Bay flows ~ like Temescal Creek, which arrives at the Bay via the Emeryville Crescent (as the freeway i80 curves westwards towards the Bay Bridge, you’ll see diverse varieties of birds (and the fish and krill they love to eat) congregating throughout the outflow.

MARIN:

The North Bay flashes the full spectrum of watershed ecosystems ~ from marshes and mudflats to tide pools and steep redwood creek waterfalls, including reservoirs all her own! Even a beach that’s been overtaken by giant mating Elephant Seals since the government shutdown.

SOUTH BAY:

Though it retains some scars from the silicon dumps of its past, as well as the shockingly vibrant colors of its seasonal salt ponds, there are multitudes of hidden eco-immersionary gems ~ ghost-towns, bird sanctuaries, secret below-surface ocean canyons as deep as those carved by the Mississippi or the Nile.

and did we mention the ISLANDS of San Francisco and San Pablo BAY?
