Diablo Restoration Team Workday – Marsh Creek 8
Join us in improving habitat for wildlife on Save Mount Diablo’s Marsh Creek 8 property, also known as Big Bend! This portion of the Marsh Creek floodplain was once a golf course fairway turned residential property with horses; now the Diablo Restoration Team works to improve its native plant abundance and diversity! Be sure to dress in layers; bring your favorite pair of sturdy shoes, plenty of water, and sunscreen. Our volunteer workdays happen rain or shine. Please note that there are no restrooms on site.
Leader: Roxana Lucero, Land Stewardship Associate, Save Mount Diablo
Meet: 14350 Marsh Creek Road, east of Clayton.
Directions: The 14350 Marsh Creek Road property driveway is 3.6 miles east of the intersection with Morgan Territory Road, and 3.2 miles west of the intersection with Deer Valley Road. East of Aspara and Gill Roads, the canyon will widen out on the south, you’ll pass a large faded green barn, and a large flat area along the creek will come into view—right as you’re about to pass the driveway. It’s the first, westernmost of two side-by-side straight, north-south driveways and is difficult to see if you are approaching from the west. Please do not drive down the second, easternmost driveway. (Also note that there is no reliable cell phone signal and Google Maps will send you too far west.)
