If you have ever wandered around the residential neighborhoods in certain parts of the Bay Area, you may have noticed the sound of a creek gurgling quietly in the most unexpectedly places between houses. Or perhaps you have heard about the Friends of Creeks organizations that have befriended these creeks to help protect and restore local watersheds. With us in the studio to tell us more about Friends of Creeks groups in the Bay Area and the actions local communities are taking to protect their creeks are Emma Gutzler of the Urban Creeks Council, Susan Schwartz of Friends of Five Creeks, and Jean Stewart of Friends of Garrity Creek.
