18 years of restoration on Codornices Creek
- Author(s): Fullmer, Chris
- et al.
Many restoration projects have taken place on Codornices Creek. This paper briefly compares Codornices Creek to Alameda Creek, another creek found in the East Bay area, to demonstrate that Codornices Creek is very well funded, even though it is a considerably smaller and less important creek than Alameda Creek. It then chronologically documents the goals, funding, and monitoring status of the known projects that have taken place on Codornices Creek. Through this study, the author is able to show that the scope of restoration projects occurring in the Codornices watershed have changed over time and have become increasingly complex and comprehensive and also that as projects are completed successfully, greater funding and support will follow.
