Happy New Year Friends of Sausal Creek!

We have three upcoming events along or near the shoreline. Please mark 
your calendars and share with your friends and neighbors.

*King Tides Walk Along the Waterfront*

*Thursday, January 12, 10 a.m.-noon*

*Fruitvale Bridge Park (Fruitvale Ave. & Alameda Ave.), Oakland*

Join local historian Dennis Evanosky for this walking tour and learn the 
history of the waterway along the shoreline, where Sausal Creek now 
flows into the estuary via a culvert. This event takes place during one 
of the King Tides of 2017, and participants are encouraged to bring 
their camera and help document what our daily tides may look like in the 
future as a result of sea level rise. See 
http://california.kingtides.net/for more information on the California 
King Tides Project.

Meet at the benches at Fruitvale Bridge Park, which is at the 
intersection of Fruitvale Avenue and Alameda Avenue. Please wear sturdy 
shoes. Rain will not cancel the walk--it could make the observations 
even more interesting!For more information, contact Kimra at 
coordinator at sausalcreek.org or (510) 501-3672,

Please join us to celebrate the release of the /Sausal Creek Walkable 
Watershed Concept Plan/. We will learn about the fish, frogs, and birds

we will talk about ways that plan features like green streets and rain 
gardens can enhance our neighborhoods and create wildlife habitat. For
