The Miller Creek watershed covers 12 square miles with 30 miles of channels. Miller Creek flows eastward from open space and private ranches on Big Rock Ridge through multiple unincorporated housing developments, including Miller Creek Estates and Marinwood, until it passes under Highway 101 and enters the baylands at the Northwest Pacific Railroad (NWPRR) Bridge.
Historical Ecology of Miller Creek
San Francisco Estuary Institute compiled a website to inform residents of the watershed and other interested people about past and present ecological landscapes within the Miller Creek watershed, and how this information might be used to plan for the future.
