Matt Stoecker transforms a love of creeks into life's work as a conservation biologist
Matt Stoecker, producer and underwater photographer for the documentary, "DamnNation," kneels in the dry bed of Sausal Creek near Portola Valley Town Center. The creek had been confined to an underground culvert for decades. He helped persuade the town to restore this section of the creek, which was uncovered about seven years ago. The creek rapidly returned to a natural state, he says. (Photo by Brandon Chew/The Almanac | July 15, 2014.)
