Sonoma Creek is one waterway covered in a 9-part education series that debuted on public TV station KRCB on July 9. The segments teach people how the watersheds play a role in our everyday lives. They can be viewed at www.ourwatershedstories.org
The Sonoma segment (Part 8) describes how Father Altimira of Sonoma Mission called the area "A fountain of fountains" when he arrived in 1823. Other segments address urban creeks, dams, the web of life and the entry of water into the Bay.
The shows are underwritten in part by Sonoma County Water Agency, North Bay Watershed Association and Russian River Watershed Association.
