On February 4th, EBCNPS submitted comments on the Notice of Preparation for the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s “Richmond Bay Campus 2013 Long Range Development Plan and Phase 1 Development Environmental Impact Report.” A copy of the Notice of Preparation document can be found HERE. The Richmond Field Station makes up part of our Richmond Shoreline BPPA due to its remnant stands of native coastal prairie grassland. EBCNPS is hopeful that the forthcoming EIR will include complete avoidance and protection measures for the native grassland at the site. We are looking forward to the forthcoming EIR and we will comment again at that time.
