With the first hard rains in the watershed comes the beginning of spawning season for Coho salmon, which means it’s time for Creekwalk Tours!

For more than 20 years, SPAWN has offered creekwalks to the Bay Area community each winter to follow the endangered Coho salmon as they return upstream. It is the best chance for people to more deeply connect with the coho’s struggle.

Led by SPAWN-trained naturalists, Creekwalk Tours gives our local community the chance to explore the majesty of the Lagunitas Creek Watershed, home to the largest remaining run of wild Central California Coast Coho. Our tours teach participants about the ecology of our endangered coho salmon and their ancient connection to our iconic coast redwoods. In addition, we learn about native plants, animals, and anything else we encounter along the way.
