Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve Naturalist Tour August 10th - 9 a.m.

Saturday, August 10th, 2024 - 9:00am to 12:30pm

 

Our club has an opportunity to be among the first to take a tour with a naturalist of the most ambitious stream restoration in the East Bay Regional Parks 90 year history. Three years construction has added at least 4 acres of riparian habitat, and more than 5 miles of new or revamped trails for hikers, bikers, and horseback riders.

Parking is extremely limited to 11 paved spaces and a small turnout beside the highway. Let’s plan to start promptly, so plan to arrive a bit before 9 a.m., with water and sun hats.

The restored free flowing streams once again form the base of the local food web. Conditions have been created to encourage the return of the rainbow trout that once swam up San Leandro Creek each winter! The project stood up to last winter’s parade of rainstorms- good news for the area’s plants, animals, and fish. Not to mention that reducing erosion taking place before this project means that cleaner water is flowing into San Leandro Creek and then into a reservoir that makes up part of the drinking water supply for 1.4 million EBMUD customers. Future projects are planned to include 4 miles of ranch roads, and marking spaces for toilets and water fountains along with a picnic campground.
