When the first hard rain hits the ground, streams start to swell and coho salmon begin their spectacular homeward migration. Join us on a Creekwalk Tour to witness a tradition that goes back thousands of years, as these fish swim hundreds of miles from their ocean feeding grounds to return to their birthplace and continue the survival of their species.

Turtle Island Restoration Network’s Creekwalk Tours explore sites throughout Marin County’s Lagunitas Creek Watershed, teaching participants about the ecology of our endangered coho salmon and their ancient connection to our iconic coast redwoods. We also learn about native plants, animals, and anything else we encounter along the way.

Tours are offered on Saturdays through December and January, as well as a few additional tours on the holidays, on the former San Geronimo Golf Course, 5800 Sir Francis Drake Blvd, San Geronimo, CA 94963. We suggest a $15 donation per person on our public tours, children 12 and under are free and do not need to register. We are always happy to set up a private tour, just email Harry to discuss your group’s needs. We typically ask for a $200 donation for private tours or an exchange for a group volunteer project.

Tours will meet at the San Geronimo Resturant & Bar parking lot on the north side of the former golf course. Parking is free. There are no bathrooms available on site.

After an introduction, we take the group to Roy’s Pools and walk upstream along the San Geronimo Creek. While we will be standing in search of salmon for most of the tour, the combined distance walking at different sites is no more than 1-2 miles. Please check with your leader when you arrive if you have any detailed questions about the sites we are visiting for that day. The walks occur rain or shine, as rainy days can often be some of the best viewing opportunities. Please dress in warm layers, as it can be cold in the redwoods. We also recommend bringing waterproof jackets or an umbrella, hiking boots, and snacks.
