Area Novato and Miller Creeks
Topic Habitat: Tidal Reach Widths in Lower Novato Creek 1854-19411
Caption:  The Chart shows tidal reach widths for Lower Novato Creek at different distances from San Pablo Bay. The data show a steady decrease in channel width from 1854 to 1941. During the 19th century, Novato Creek supported commercial navigation (Dedrick, 1993). The extensive tidal marshlands and the network of sloughs at the eastern margin of the alluvial valley were diked and drained for agriculture around the 1860's (Collins, 1998). Data were collected by Laurel Collins.
