Cal State East Bay and Save Mount Diablo – Galindo Creek Field Station

Department: Galindo Creek Field Station

The Galindo Creek Field Station at Cal State East Bay Concord Campus is 53.9 acres of university land designed to support scholarship and learning. The principal geographic feature of the preserve is Galindo Creek, which is part of the Walnut Creek Watershed. Galindo Creek provides habitat for dozens of native species including deer, coyotes, bobcats, rabbits and squirrels, as well as a variety of reptiles, amphibians and birds, some on California’s endangered list.

Save Mount Diablo’s mission is to forever preserve the remaining natural lands on and around Mount Diablo, and to connect Mount Diablo to the rest of the Diablo Range. We achieve our mission through a conservation approach that integrates perpetual land preservation, advocacy, stewardship, land use planning, and education programs. We work to preserve Mount Diablo’s peaks, surrounding foothills, and watersheds through land acquisition and preservation strategies designed to protect the mountain’s natural beauty, biological diversity, and historical and agricultural heritage; enhance our area’s quality of life; and provide recreational opportunities consistent with the protection of natural resources.
