Oakland Opposes Preserving Native Grassland

The Oakland City Council denied the appeal of California Native Grasslands Association, and The Friends of Knowland Park against the Planning Department’s approval of the existing Subsequent Mitigated Negative Declaration/Addendum (SMNDA) for the Oakland Zoo’s Expansion into 50 acres of Knowland Park.  This will result in severe damage to one of the few remaining native grasslands in the Oakland Hills and California.  To read more go to:  Oakland Planning Commission Denies CNPS Appeal, Approves Oakland Zoo Development on Rare Native Grasslands « East Bay Chapter – California Native Plant Society Conservation.
