More than 2,000 feet of McCosker Creek in the Robert Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve is covered by a failing metal culvert that’s 60 years old. Giant sinkholes have opened up and dissolved the metal, allowing sediment to seep in, according to the East Bay Regional Park District.

We are deeply disappointed by Governor Newsom's veto of AB 1086, a bill that would have created a path to preserve the 3,100-acre Tesla site against the ravages of the off-road vehicles that have decimated the contiguous Carnegie off-road vehicle park for decades.
