The Hills-to-Bay ! Greenway

Currentl y residents of the upper Temescal Creek watershed are working on securing and protecting public access walking trails connecting the ridge trail system to Lake Temescal Regional Park. There is much housing development pressure on privately owned open space in the upper watershed. Several developers are in negotiation with residents and the City of Oakland to set aside rights-of-way. Please email us if you’d like to help out.

Fifth Graders Are Looking For Ways To Help Improve Temescal Creek

We have been contacted by eager teachers and students who want to do something constructive to help the creek. Any creek friends, or groups in the watershed who are thinking of d! oing some project are encouraged to contact us to see if we can make a match! Many science teachers in the area have adopted the “Kids in Creeks” curriculum, and their kids can help out with service learning. They can do things like: raising and planting native plants, creek clean-up, water quality testing, plant and animal observation and many other things.
