Have you ever wondered what lives at the bottom of our creeks? Would you like to find out? Join us in the creeks as we look for benthic macroinvertebrates, bottom-dwelling bugs that tell us about creek health. No experience necessary. We welcome additional adult volunteers to join us in this event, but space is limited. Please RSVP to Helen Dickson (helenmariedickson@gmail.com) to ensure your spot or to learn more.

Public Meeting: California Biodiversity- It's geology's fault!
Wed., April 1, 7:00-9:00pm
El Sobrante Library Meeting Room
4191 Appian Way

Did you know that California is home to more unique species than any other state? This is in part due to the geology of California. Join UC Davis geologist Andrew Fowler for a discussion about how the many different climate zones and the variety of rock types resulting from geologic forces contributes to the state's amazing plant diversity. We hope to see you there!
