Riparian corridor advocacy, steelhead trout, the Muwekma Ohlone people, drought, and homeless encampments are all just some of the issues related to the Coyote Creek watershed, as well as topics covered during this year’s tour. Sonya Herrera, a student at San Jose State and participant on the tour, wrote a nice summary of the event for the Spartan Daily in the article Students and faculty take a tour of Coyote Creek watershed (4/2/15).
A special thanks to all of the day’s speakers, and to Facebook and the Santa Clara Valley Water District for sponsoring the event. And, thanks to everyone who joined us and willfully shared an entire Saturday learning more about this complex watershed, the issues surrounding it, and what we can do to protect it.
