Walking Waterhoods Tour in Lower Dimond Park

Saturday, April 6 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Sausal Creek winds its way through this dramatic canyon that has seen thousands of years of human activity. As European colonists moved into the area and displaced the native Ohlone from their land, the area now known as Dimond Park went through several iterations as an elite homestead, water source, recreation area, Boy Scout camp, and eventually a public park with the rare above-ground Sausal Creek.

Some highlights of the tour will include:

Ohlone uses of plants, animals and the creek
The Peralta Family colonization
Sausal Water Company
Redwoods – where they were and weren’t
What does it mean to daylight a creek?
Devastating effects of stormwater and what you can do
The heroes of the watershed: Friends of Sausal Creek
Our tours are interactive so we hope you’ll come with your own tidbits of knowledge and stories to offer.In addition, we encourage you to check out our Lower Dimond and Upper Dimond Walking Waterhoods Tour on Pocketsights before, as there’s so much more to know than we’ll be able to get to in person. In this tour, we’ll only be in lower Dimond.
