The Creek and Its Watershed

Wolf Creek begins above Grass Valley, California, flows through the city, turns roughly south, and eventually joins the Bear River. The creek and its tributaries drain a significant portion of southwestern Nevada County. Wolf Creek has historically been neglected and under-appreciated, but that has begun to change as Wolf Creek Community Alliance works to re-weave the creek into the fabric of the community.
