The principal geographic feature of the preserve is Galindo Creek. Part of the Mount Diablo Watershed, the creek runs through the eastern edgeof campus and is surrounded by a legally mandated riparian buffer that provides habitat for dozens of native species including deer, coyotes, bobcats, rabbits, and squirrels, as well as a variety of reptiles, amphibians and birds, some on the California endangered list.
