This project was a student-initiated research and design group funded by UC Berkeley’s Green Initiative Fund (TGIF). In collaboration with UC Berkeley staff and faculty and in partnership with ESA PWA and Bioengineering Associates, a team of students assessed, designed and implemented solutions to improve riparian habitat and ecological function at the confluence of Strawberry Creek on the UC Berkeley Campus.

|Pete Moniz Topographical Survey & Soil Analysis
Pete graduated from UC Berkeley in 2013 with a BS in Environmental Sciences. During the latter half of his time at Cal, he studied the use of recycled water for urban stream renewal in Dr. Vincent Resh’s Aquatic Ecology Lab. He now works for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife where he helps monitor native fish species in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Many of the native fish species that he finds in the Delta are species that can also be found in Strawberry Creek.
