Working under the umbrella of the El Sobrante Valley Defense Fund, the Canyon Park Friends of Open Space (CPFOS) has formed to prevent open space in El Sobrante from being developed by the proposed Clark Road Project. The 144 acres of open space adjacent to Wildcat Canyon Park contain three creeks and several year-round springs, providing wetland habitat for two threatened species: the Alameda whipsnake and the California red-legged frog. To keep track of the status of this land and the imminent EIR, or to get involved in the preservation effort, visit www.saveelsobrantehills.org
