Take a Hike – Salmon in the Sierras
June 25, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Northern California Regional Land Trust is excited to welcome the public to the Deer Creek Preserve to learn about the salmon populations in this tributary to the Sacramento River as part of the Take a Hike event series. Led by Matt Johnson, an Environmental Scientist and Anadromous Fisheries Supervisor at California Department of Fish and Wildlife, this hike will wind into the interior of the Preserve to the fish ladder before returning along the same route, offering participants the opportunity to expand their understanding of the lifecycle of migratory fish in Sierra watersheds, and to learn about other species that call Deer Creek home. Visit www.landconservation.org/events to learn more about all Take a Hike events!
This is a moderate hike of three to four miles, depending on participant interest, with a few fairly strenuous climbs and one stream crossing on boulders that will be navigable for any sure-footed hiker. Supportive footwear, light clothing layers, sunscreen, a hat, and ample water and snacks are recommended.
Registration is free but is required to participate. Please consider a tax-deductible donation to support future educational events like this one, and the conservation of open spaces and wild places across Northern California!
