Come hear about a project to reconnect the Wildcat Creek watershed from the headwaters in Tilden Park to the Bay and restore steelhead to the watershed. Trout Unlimited has partnered with the Contra Costa County Flood Control District, the Watershed Project, and FlowWest Consultants on this project.
They have a vision of restoring steelhead (rainbow) trout to Wildcat Creek, and have been active with other groups with this goal in mind. Native coastal steelhead have few remaining strongholds for spawning.
The presentation will cover some background regarding the watershed; steelhead trout life stages and habitat needs; fish ladder history, function and monitoring; and current status of that effort.
