Come explore riparian habitats and learn about the importance of water quality. Whiskeytown National Recreation Area has numerous healthy riparian zones. Riparian zones are critically important because they store and purify water, reduce damage from floodwaters, and provide habitat for wildlife and people. Unfortunately, riparian zones can be threatened by human influences. Join a Ranger for fun hands-on activities at Brandy Creek. These activities will relate to water quality testing, watersheds, macroinvertebrates, and how humans can help protect riparian zones.

The program will run Tuesdays from 10:30 a.m-12:30 p.m. through Labor Day. Meet at theBrandy Creek Beach entrance, in the dirt parking lot near the restrooms. The program is limited to the first fifteen visitors and is directed towards families with children. Participants must be able to navigate uneven terrain, as the program will take place along Brandy Creek.For questions call (530) 242-5154.
