Codornices Creek Watershed

The Codornices Creek Watershed includes:

Village Creek (Lower Marin Creek), Upper Marin Creek, & Blackberry Creek
Codornices (quail in Spanish) was named for quail eggs that the sons the Spanish land grantee found on its banks. Blackberry Creek used to be a tributary of Cerrito Creek. A stormdrain now captures the flows of Blackberry Creek and upper Marin Creek, discharging them from an outfall into the marsh north of Golden Gate Fields.
