Take a Hike – Salmon in the Sierras
June 4, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 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 on Saturday, June 4th, from 9:30am-12:30pm. Led by Matt Johnson, an Environmental Scientist 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.
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.
There is an option to caravan from Chico Park & Ride at 8:15am.
