Unlikely Urban Environments

Thursday, September 21, in Berkeley


Over the past 30 years, the East Bay has pioneered a growing movement to restore very degraded riparian corridors, including digging up streams buried underground in culverts. These neighborhood-scale projects have produced unlikely wild areas with remarkable bird and wildlife use in the midst of densely populated cities.

Dr. Ann Riley is the author of Restoring Neighborhood Streams and was recently featured in the PBS show Urban Nature. She has worked as a river scientist for state agencies for over 25 years and was a co-founder of the Urban Creeks Council and California Urban Streams Partnership.

Date:     Thursday, September 21

Time:    6:30 p.m. for refreshments, 7 p.m. for program

Place:    Northbrae Community Church
               941 The Alameda (between Solano & Marin), Berkeley

Cost:      Free for GGAS members, $5 for non-members.
