Project Description

Alameda Creek historically supported Chinook salmon and steelhead runs. Recent habitat improvements by Alameda County Water District and others will open up the mainstem Alameda Creek to these fish in spring 2022, for the first time in decades. We are working with partners to assess habitat conditions and usage by steelhead to help inform future management and restoration projects, starting in Stonybrook Creek, a key spawning tributary.
