Stockton, meet the Calaveras River.

Crews have installed 14 signs proclaiming the name of the stream along bridges throughout north Stockton.

“A lot of people cross the river and just don’t know it,” said Larry Nordstrom, a retired landscape architect who pushed the project forward. “Anytime you can make people aware we have a river in the city of Stockton – not just a drainage ditch – it’s great.”

Nordstrom, a member of the advocacy group Friends of the Lower Calaveras River, launched the project seven or eight months ago. But the work was shared across the community.
