Over about a 2-hour period, Jody Watson (Chair of the Bowker Creek Initiative) weaved the story of Bowker Creek from the late 1800s through until the present. Her storytelling provided context for the collective indifference that had characterized the urbanization of Bowker Creek for more than a century; and for the design with nature ethic that is now driving watershed restoration.

Why did we choose Bowker Creek when it is a rather degraded watershed, asked Jody Watson rhetorically. The answer is that we saw it as an opportunity. If we could make it right in Bowker Creek, we could make it right anywhere.
