California's East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) contains about 80,000 acres of open space. While EBRPD is charged with preserving and protecting these parks on behalf of the public, they license the use of about 60,000 acres for grazing by domestic livestock. In this report, Greg Schneider looks at the impacts of this grazing program from the viewpoint of a frequent park user, and he includes hundreds of photographs to illustrate the excellent points that he makes. - Larry Walker, Range Conservationist (retired)
