Save Mount Diablo's Thomas Home Ranch

Marsh Creek 6, our newest acquisition and second property on a volcanic plug dome, isMarsh Creek- V and VI
located east of Clayton just downstream from three of our other properties. Like Marsh
Creek-V
, the first dome, Marsh Creek 6 is especially biodiverse partly because it is on a
rare volcanic dome with high silica content. Although acquired for its creek segment, the
property is rich in resources and in many other ways. Marsh Creek – VI contains a lovely,
high-quality 250 foot section of the Creek, a known habitat for the threatened California
red-legged frog, several rare plant species including Contra Costa manzanita, the endemic
Mt. Diablo Globe lily and the unusual citrus fragrant hop tree, as well as the uncommon
volcanic rock rhyodacite within its 6 acres.
