EBCNPS prides itself on bringing science-based analysis to projects that have impact to native vegetation and habitats.  Often, the effect of our comments and educational efforts are difficult to identify.  On October 15th, the San Francisco Chronicle covered three projects in which EBCNPS has supported the local communities efforts to support, improve, or oppose a specific project.  We think this is good news, and we’re certain there’s even more to come.  Please continue to support our efforts with a small donation to the EBCNPS Conservation Analyst Fund (see information at bottom of this post) so that we can continue to employ one part-time staff to help coordinate the work of our community.
