Press Release

CreekSpeak, Putah Creek Council’s six-month series of community talks about the nature, culture and history of the region, continues with its third talk at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 17, via Zoom, with a discussion about how the soils in the lower Putah Creek are linked to the larger landscape.

Streams and creeks collect water and sediments from larger watersheds. So, they reflect the climate and geological conditions of the larger basin. In the case of the lower Putah Creek corridor, the contributing watershed is the northern inner coast range.

The third CreekSpeak of 2020 will welcome soil scientist Vic Claassen as he discusses the influence weather patterns, water-flow patterns and geological materials had and have on the Putah Creek Watershed.

To attend the Zoom talk, a registration form must be completed online, found on the event page on the Putah Creek Council calendar. A confirmation email will be sent that includes login information to access the Zoom meeting on the day of the talk.

These talks are free to Putah Creek Council members and $5 for others (registration will be capped at 100 people).

More information about the 2020 CreekSpeak schedule is available at, or by calling the Putah Creek Council office at 530-795-3006.
