Wolf Creek Community Alliance presents 'The State of the Creek'

On Oct. 24, the Wolf Creek Community Alliance will present an informative and colorful overview of the Wolf Creek watershed as it exists today, and its future.

Gary Griffith, a teacher at the Nevada City School of the Arts and a volunteer water monitor, will present the recent analysis of water quality data collected by WCCA volunteers since 2003. The study was funded by the Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment.

With the completion of the document, all of the data collected since 2003 can be found in one place, and available to the general public.

The Wolf Creek watershed is a dynamic landscape covering approximately 50,000 acres and encompassing the City of Grass Valley as well as rural-agricultural land and forest. Stream and river corridors are critical, and these will become increasingly important as climate impacts intensify and fragmented ecosystems try to adapt.

The presentation will be held from 6:30-8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24, at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 246 South Church St., Grass Valley.
