Stream Expert Will Tell How to Bring Water And Fish Back To San Leandro Creek

Restoration expert Ann L. Riley will speak Tuesday, February 12 at 7 pm at the Main Public Library.


Ann L. Riley, Ph.D., an internationally-renowned stream restoration expert, will speak at the San Leandro Main Library on Tuesday, February 12 at 7 pm.

Her two-hour talk in the library's David Karp Room will be hosted by the Friends of San Leandro Creek.

Rilety will talk about how to restore the water flow and fish to the city's waterway, as other communities have already done.

The event is free. Fresh baked goods and coffee will be served. There will be a drawing for raffle prizes. 

She knows her stuff

Riley has been involved in many projects since the early 1980s.

She currently advises the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board on how to restore streams and watersheds. She also works with many other state and federal agencies.

Among other works, Riley has authored Restoring Streams in Cities, a widely-used how-to on the topic.  

Known as an innovator with a keen technical eye and a grass-roots style, Riley has helped many creek and stream-related organizations.

In her talk and subsequent Q&A, Riley will help the Friends of San Leandro Creek envision the possibilities of restoring our watershed.  

In a related development, the Friends are working with city officials to create a creekside walking path that would begin across from the San Leandro BART station and end at Root Park on East 14th Street.
