Dear Knowland Park Supporters,
We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new website, a project of the Knowland Park Coalition! The Coalition includes Friends of Knowland Park, the East Bay Chapter of the California Native Plant Society, the California Native Grasslands Association, California Wildlife Foundation/California Oaks, and Defense of Place. We hope you will take a moment right now to go explore the site www.saveknowland.org and sign up for notifications of new content. Even we, who have spent so many hours exploring the park and working to protect it over the last four-plus years, have learned amazing new things about the park from working with our Coalition partners—check it out!

The new website aims to educate the public about Knowland Park and the campaign to protect its rare, beautiful natural resources from being lost to the “conservation”-themed Oakland Zoo expansion into the park. Enjoy the photographs of the Park’s wildflowers and other native plants, its birds and animals, its views and vistas.

Learn about the history of Knowland Park, the threat to its preservation, and the campaign to protect it. Find out how to access its trails. Our blog will be published twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and at other intervals as new events happen or new information becomes available.

Please go to www.saveknowland.org now and sign up to get updates from the Coalition! This site will help us be more efficient in our communications and widen our reach. And tell us what you think! This has been a true labor of love, with literally thousands of volunteer hours devoted to making a website that will do justice to the Park’s true value.
