Lenny Grimaldo will discuss the life history of the steelhead trout & show how our creek’s health is important to them.

He has spent his career conducting research on fishes in California waters and is currently studying the role of estuarine marshes to support listed fish species such as delta smelt, longfin smelt, and Chinook salmon.
