Yesterday, along Sausal Creek, I saw the usually trickling waterfall, which is located midway down the canyon, turn into a cascade. And the width of the creek was equally stunning. The rains have challenged the creek’s edges but not, as far as I know, breached the sides. As I left, a Cooper’s hawk stood perched in one of the oaks. It seems to have adapted to the sounds of the nearby road. The Sausal Creek watershed benefits from the wide array of volunteers who have dedicated tens of thousands of hours to restoring its native plants, waterway and habitat.
