November 2010: The Trails and Tributaries of the Sausal Creek Watershed map has been updated and reprinted. Download revised map (.pdf, 6.3mb).
This map, created and updated by long-time volunteer and computer wizard Karen Paulsell, was originally published in December 2007. Karen began by using the map created by Janet Sowers for the Oakland Museum's creek map of Oakland and Berkeley. One of her original goals was to get an accurate trail map that would provide a basis for mapping the rare plants of the watershed. She set her GPS into "track mode" on seed collecting hikes. Where things just didn't look right, intrepid Karen walked into the deep ravines of the watershed and added new creek segments that have year-round water!
Special thanks to volunteer designer Cheryl Koehler for skillfully laying out the updated trail map brochure.
We hope this map will encourage people to explore the extremely interesting but less familiar parts of the watershed; will motivate folks to volunteer to help FOSC maintain the trails; and will inspire residents to do their part to help keep creeks healthy.
Thanks to the Alameda Countywide Clean Water Program for funding the printing of this map!
