Not a bad first day at the office for Emily and Henry! They stored their extra equipment alongside Cinderella Creek in Joaquin Miller Park, then got to work capturing footage of the planning stages for an important park safety project that will be featured in the film – a collaboration between Public Works and the Bicycle Trails Council of the East Bay.
This is the type of project that Oakland can be proud of! Non-profit organizations – fueled by volunteers – working with city staff that appreciates the help.
Formed in 1987, BTCEB has been a leader in encouraging low-impact, environmentally friendly mountain bike riding, volunteer trail work participation, cooperation among different trail user groups, and grassroots advocacy.
Friends of Joaquin Miller Park are hikers, mountain bikers, equestrians, dog owners, cross country runners, historians, writers, and neighbors — all dedicated to maintaining, preserving and enhancing the rich natural legacy that was originally the home of the late 19th Century poet and environmentalist, Joaquin Miller.
