Location East Bay (EB) 
Location description Dimond Canyon is a 80 acre wild open space area tucked into the developed hills of Oakland near the intersection of Hwy 13 and Park Blvd. The park had some extensive public works projects in the past that urbanized the stream. Since then there have been several projects to bring much of it back to a natural setting. The hills are steep in the area. A trail network was built by the city and some with significant help from the Bicycle Trails Council of the East Bay. Currently the BTCEB works on trail maintenance and a bike patrol in the park. There is also a very active natural resource group. Friends of Sausal Creek are actively working on non-native removal and habitat restoration. V-O-Cal will actively work to engage both existing groups along with additional V-O-Cal volunteers to do extensive trail repair, standard brushing work and habitat restoration. Some trails need switchback maintenance. There are at least two sections of fence needed to improve safety. We will create a safe and sustainable path to the creek in several areas where users are currently “sliding down” steep hillsides not intended for trails. We will also work with the Friends group to bring additional human resources to the restoration work they have been doing for some time.
