>> As I ate my lunch today along the newly daylighted section of Sausal Creek in Dimond Park, I had the pleasure to observe a group of young people enjoying the creek: sitting on the rocks and splashing, playing games, along with exploring what they could find in and around the creek. It is great seeing the creek not only being used by the birds but the local kids as well, allowing them a place to explore and connect with the nature around them. That this is now easier for Oakland youth is great and makes me think how important all the restoration work has been and how important it is to keep up the good work. And it makes me think how crucial the Walkable Watershed plans are to make this type of playful learning in the outdoors more accessible to Oakland's youth, especially in the Fruitvale neighborhood.
