YOUR CREEK 95401

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR STORM DRAINS FLOW?

The headwaters of Santa Rosa Creek begin in Hood Mountain Regional Park, where springs feed the creek even on the driest days of summer.

Santa Rosa Creek is nature’s presence in our urban environment, threading its way through our neighborhoods, businesses, parks, and schools. It is a major tributary that numerous creeks flow into. Paved and gravel public trails follow much of the creek as it stretches across our city.

The Prince Memorial Parkway in downtown Santa Rosa showcases creek restoration and art. Look here for the start of a 6-mile paved pathway that follows Santa Rosa Creek towards the confluence with the Laguna de Santa Rosa.

Wildlife is abundant in and along Santa Rosa Creek. Keep a lookout for river otters, they are commonly found traveling up and down the creek, searching for fish and crayfish. They swim but also easily travel on stretches of dry creek bed in the late summer. Steelhead trout have excellent spawning habitat in the headwaters of Santa Rosa Creek where it begins in Hood Mountain Regional Park.

Santa Rosa Creek is Ours to Protect. Remember, storm drains connect streets to creeks, which flow into the Russian River. Simple changes can make a big impact.
