Sunday, September 4, 10:00 am, Briones Regional Park

Sunday, September 11, 10:00 am, Dimond Park in Oakland
Sausal Creek in Dimond Canyon has recently undergone major restoration! We will look at the recently daylighted 180-foot stretch of Sausal Creek and discuss some of the native plants that have been used to stabilize the creek banks and enhance valuable riparian habitat. After walking along the restored creek we will loop through the park and follow the Dimond Canyon Trail up to Leimert Bridge.
Meet at the Historical Scout Hut in Dimond Park. The Scout Hut is between the creek, the new restrooms and the basketball court. (Park in the lot next to the Dimond Recreation Center or on the north side of the park on Wellington Street or Canon Avenue.) The trip will cover about 1.5 miles. The path includes uneven and rocky terrain and a moderate incline.

Sunday, September 18, 10:00 am, Delta and marsh plants in Martinez. Join Gregg Weber at the end of Waterfront Road, which you reach by exiting 680 at Marina Vista exit and following signage to Waterfront Road. If you haven’t viewed salt and brackish (lesser salinity) marsh plants before, may I recommend a good look at them in the face of a predicted long-term sea level rise.
