Turtle just upstream from Crittenden Bridge5 viewsI think this is a Western Pond Turtle. The Treo photo isn't the most clear (x2 is the inset), but i'm pretty sure those are clawed legs extending out the back. Jun 06, 2007

Wild Cucumber - Not a weed!37 viewsMarch 2006 - Permanente Creek- Marah fabaceus, aka Wild Cucumber, is a native gourd plant in the watershed. It can be mistaken for Cape Ivy. Cape Ivy is a member of the daisy family, and has a very different flower. Cape Ivy has tougher leaves and a darker color. Let's be careful not to mix these up!Mar 16, 2006
Vinca flower34 viewsMarch 2006: Permanente Creek. Vinca major has leaves in direct opposition of each other. Ironically, it is used as a ground cover to keep weeds out of the garden. In the nursery, you will also find variegated forms and a smaller flower and leaf species called Vinca minor. Normally, you'll only find Vinca major along the creeks. The flower is unique. Notice the five sides shape in the center. The sap is milky and poisonous. It is in the same family as Oleander.Mar 16, 2006
Vinca patch68 viewsMarch 2006 - Patch of Vinca major on the Permanente creek. The patch is roughly oblong, and well shaded by trees. Mar 16, 2006
