Imagine…a place with incredible natural, cultural and scenic resources located along the Diablo Range in Eastern Alameda County. Imagine such a place is a Botanical Priority Protection Area of the East Bay CNPS, Critical Linkage Habitat Corridor in the Bay Area Conservation Lands Network, and within an Audubon Important Bird Area. Imagine this place includes sacred sites for indigenous peoples and the historic town site of Tesla. Now imagine this sensitive native landscape in our area is under imminent threat of being converted to a destructive off-road vehicle park. Join us at our May 5th meeting for a timely presentation about the rich natural and cultural history of Tesla, the threat from the proposed expansion of Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area, and the work of Friends of Tesla Park to permanently preserve the natural wildland referred to as Tesla.
