Creek Care — A Guide for Rural Landowners and Residents of Petaluma and Sonoma Creek Watersheds

Wherever you live, your daily activities can affect our creeks. Recently, members of our local communities came together to look at the history of our creeks and developed plans to make sure that they are well taken care of into the future. An important goal of these plans is to let neighbors know about creek concerns and how they can help. This creek care guide was created as a result. This booklet covers what some of the issues are, how you can contribute to maintaining healthy creeks, and where you can get advice if needed. This guide will hopefully encourage and support your efforts.
