Restoration plans for the Albany Bulb.
Well, work has has begun, and fencing (lots of fencing) is being put into place.
“Improvements” to the lower path started today.
It’s going to be a different time for many visitors to the Bulb.
Here is some information:
The first phase of the project will focus on a portion of the Neck owned by the Park District, the southern edge along the shoreline. The $4.1 million undertaking will include landscaping and re-surfacing of about 2,000 feet of the Bay Trail, making it more accessible for people with disabilities, and will also include extensive restoration of the shoreline.

Berkeley’s Paw Fund will be holding another free vaccine clinic!
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has pushed back the date when it expects to announce its selection for a proposed second campus to early 2012.
Originally, the lab wanted to select a site by last August. As of a week ago, a lab spokesman stated the decision was still planned for this month.
Paw Fund (www.pawfund.org), which helps provide vet care for the animals of people with severe financial challenges, has been battling an ongoing parvovirus epidemic amongst puppies living at the Bulb.
Also, on November 5 a Bulb resident’s puppy had to be euthanized after, possibly, having found or been fed poison by another resident. Please watch your dogs carefully at the Landfill.
