Strawberry Creek and the inhabitants of its watershed, are subjected to geologic processes including uplifting, earthquakes and mass wasting that created the watershed and continue today and will shape the future. Strawberry Creek itself crosses the Hayward Fault, a dominant geologic feature of the campus and a prime candidate for a major earthquake in the near future.

This page presents reports and links to other information on the geology of the Strawberry Creek watershed.
