Self-Guided Tour Sign #19 - Critter Creek
When Tauhindauli Park was being designed, it was decided to take natural water draining from small springs on the hillside just north of the Park, and combine it with run-off from north Dunsmuir to create this little creek running through the Park. In the early 2000’s, teachers and students at Dunsmuir Elementary School decided to adopt this creek and make it a school project.
The project included a naming contest (“Critter Creek” was chosen as the name), as well as clean-up and planting efforts along the streambed. The Dunsmuir City Council later formally adopted the students’ name as the official name of the creek.
