No previous local name; recent community involvement in construction of campsite and picnic area here suggested that a name was desirable. Various suggestions were made by Dunster residents before they agreed with 4-H Club proposal to name the creek and facilities for the abundance of “diamond” willow trees (Salix plenifolia, ssp pulchra) in the area.
