The Marsh Creek Restoration Project

The Marsh Creek Restoration Project is funded through a grant from the California Coastal Conservancy. The partner agencies include the Natural Heritage Institute, the Contra Costa Resource Conservation District and the Delta Science Center.
The Marsh Creek watershed drains the north side of Mt. Diablo and includes the citites of Oakley, Brentwood, and part of Antioch in eastern Contra Costa County approximately 40 miles northeast of San Francisco.  This watershed drains 128 spuare miles of rangeland, farmland, and urban land and is the second largest watershed in the County.  Marsh Creek flows for approximately 30 river miles from its headwaters in the Morgan Territory, the eastern flank of Mt Diablo, to its mouth at Big Break in the western Delta and is an important ecological link between the Delta and the Diablo Range.
Photographing the restoration is important to document the progress of the restoration and show the changes over time.
