If you are not interested in watching the San Francisco 49ers or Oakland Raiders this afternoon, the Friends of Marsh Creek Watershed are hosting a nature walk to see if they can spot more salmon in the creek. The walk begins at 12:30 as Cathy Case, resident fish specialist will lead the Salmon Monitoring Walk. Attendees will meet at Brentwood’s Homecoming Park 2040 Homecoming Way, Brentwood. You are encouraged wear comfortable walking shoes and appropriate clothes for the weather. The event is expected to conclude by 2:30 pm.
Last week, Karen Rarey of the Contra Costa Times, first reported on this story after a YouTube video was posted by Brentwood residents John and Kathy Sierra after they were out on a walk along Marsh Creek earlier this month when they spied and filmed the first-known salmon to make it as far south as Balfour Road in more than 50 years.
