Americano Creek springs from low-lying coastal hills 4 miles west of Cotati before reaching Bodega Bay. Its mouth lies near the north end of the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary and was once home to a Coast Miwok indian village. Migratory waterfowl, shorebirds, eagles and red-tailed hawks dwell here.
