Your Creek 95492

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR STORM DRAINS FLOW?

The headwaters of Windsor Creek begin in the Mayacamas Mountains, north and east of Windsor. The creek is 8.8 miles long and winds its way through the Town of Windsor, paralleling Brooks Road, just east of Highway 101. It is in this stretch of the creek, you will find portions of paved and unpaved trails that are enjoyable for walkers, runners and bicyclists. It is the main stem of all the creeks that flow through Town.

Like all creeks, Windsor Creek provides habitat for various forms of wildlife including beneficial insects, frogs, deer, fox and in some areas, even fish. The creek banks also provide shelter and drinking water for many different types of birds and reptiles.

Windsor Creek passes under Highway 101 and then continues southwest on its journey, passing through the Windsor Golf Course, winding through farmland and eventually flowing into Mark West Creek. The water then flows westward, entering the Russian River, east of Steelhead Beach Regional Park and eventually making its way to the Pacific Ocean.

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