The Euc Controversy Explained

AppleMarkKudos to Sophie Ho of the East Bay Express for getting everything right! Her June 24 article tells the whole story accurrately and explains all points of view without taking sides. This is an excellent and short read for anyone still confused over issues related to the FEMA wildfire hazard mitigation grants to land owners in Claremont Canyon and elsewhere in the East Bay Hills.

Carolyn and Ranger along the Norfolk Trail


Report of our Saturday, June 27 Stewardship


On Saturday, we resumed our efforts to remove French broom along the edges of the Norfolk Trail and to open up places that had become overgown with hemlock and were impossible to pass. Six of us were met at the trailhead by Park Supervisor Jim Rutledge, who set us up with gloves and tools and our own ranger for the day. We hope to connect this trail to the Willow Trail and are working to coordinate with the two land owners, the East Bay Regional Park District and UC Berkeley. We had a lot of fun and we hope you will come and join us next time.
