    Visitors to the Albany Bulb would be wise to attend this workshop and watch this project closely. The East Bay Regional Park District is engaged in many such “restoration” projects throughout the East Bay region. Many of these projects require restrictions on recreational access (see http://milliontrees.wordpress.com). Most projects require destruction of all non-native trees. Virtually all projects require the application of herbicides to destroy non-native vegetation. In this particular case, is it realistic to “restore” land which is landfill?
