As early as next month the Oakland Zoo is going to start throwing up 8′ fences topped by 3′ of barbed wire around perhaps the most lovely park on the western flank of the East Bay hills and excluding the public from it forever unless you pay big bucks to visit the newly constructed paved roads, 50 structures, 15-car gondola, vistor center or high-end restaurant.  So I’m leading a little hike Saturday, March 14th so we can see what we are about to lose unless we fight back.

The book is the result of more than six years of research and study of original documents including eyewitness accounts by early travelers, records kept by the … Continued
