Operation Bicycle visits Stuart Creek!
On May 10th, Adrian loaded up the van and headed off to a new place to explore – Stuart Creek in Glen Ellen. When they arrived, they were met by TSS board members Judy Scotchmoor and Doug Hanford plus Tony Nelson, a biologist and program manager with the Sonoma Land Trust.
After some brief introductions, Tony started off the conversation by talking about the steelhead trout that used to frequent Stuart Creek and the decision to re-route the creek in the hopes that they will return.
Doug, the landscape engineer in charge of the project, talked about the challenges his company faced, including bringing in 4-ton boulders to prevent the creek from straying from its new path.
After a few questions from the boys, there was ample opportunity to explore the creek and perhaps the highlight was the discovery by Filemon of some tadpoles upstream. Now we will await news from Tony as he waits to see what kind of frog is inhabiting the creek!!
