CreekSpeak, Putah Creek Council’s six-month series of community talks about the nature, culture, and history of our region, concludes on Thursday, Oct. 17 with a discussion on the history and impact of the UC Davis-hosted Putah Cache Bioregion Project.

The Putah Cache Bioregion Project was an integrated, interdisciplinary suite of research and educational activities in the Putah and Cache Creek watersheds, the “home region” of UC Davis. This multi-year project involved faculty, students, and staff from diverse departments, and citizens from all parts of the two watershed. It led to the production of a web-based book, artwork, GIS maps, technical reports, and much more. Join us at the final CreekSpeak of 2019 to learn from key project members – Prof. Rob Thayer, Prof. David Robertson, Prof. Peter Moyle, and Dr. Dennis Pendleton – about the work they put into this effort and its lasting impact. We look forward to capping off the CreekSpeak season by reflecting on the Putah Cache Bioregion Project’s achievements, and discussing what we can learn from its lasting partnerships and deep attention paid to where we are.

The presentation begins at 7 p.m. at the Davis Branch Library Blanchard Room.

CreekSpeak events are at 7 p.m. on the third Thursday of the month, held at the Blanchard Room at the Mary L. Stephens Davis Branch Library (315 E. 14th St.) and the Winters Community Library Margaret Parsons Room (708 Railroad Ave.). These talks are free to Putah Creek Council members and open to the public. A $5 donation is requested from those who have not yet joined the Council.
