Inventorying Trash

GNNA had an interesting presentation from Dr. Roland Brady and Crystal Tobias on Steelhead Creek. Steelhead Creek has become a garbage strewn body of water but it actually is an important tributary of the American River. The garbage including plastics, tarps, mattresses, shopping carts,and other stuff has settled on the bottom of the creek. Where crawdads, fresh water clams, and small fish used to burrow into the mud is now dead zones. A group has been inventorying the trash (and throwing away what they pull out of creek) in order to collect data that can go towards healing the creek. Look for their very interesting powerpoint to be published on the GNNA site. Also, GNNA voted to write a letter in support of these efforts. Hopefully soon, we can enjoy a sparkling water way that meanders through out neighborhood.
