President's Message: November in Claremont Canyon

Our Fall Newsletter is now available (click here).  Also, as promised, here is a link to the USFWS Biological Opinion regarding the FEMA grant to remove hazardous trees in Claremont Canyon.  We appreciate the help of State Senator Loni Hancock, Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner, Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates, Oakland Mayor Jean Quan, Berkeley councilmembers Arreguin, Capitelli, Wengraf and Wosniak and Oakland councilmembers Kalb, Kaplan, Reid and Schaaf who have all written letters to FEMA urging that the funds be released and that they be used to remove the eucalyptus forest in Claremont Canyon and not just thin these hazardous, invasive trees.
