Please read this recent article posted on Berkelyside describing the ongoing FEMA process to fund fuels management plans in the East Bay Hills: http://www.berkeleyside.com/2013/05/17/uc-berkeley-seeks-funds-to-cut-down-22000-non-native-trees/

EBCNPS is working to review the FEMA EIS and will be submitting comments on the report. Those comments will be posted on this blog as soon as they are completed.

Update: The Claremont Canyon Conservancy (http://claremontcanyon.org/) is circulating a petition in support of the findings of the FEMA EIS and the fuels management measures outlined in the plan (removing flammable and invasive eucalyptus). You can view their petition here: http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/support-east-bay-hills?source=s.icn.em.mt&r_by=7897161 .
