Getting ready for our Feb. 3 show, I’ve been doing a lot of exploration on the Trail in Richmond. Even though I’ve lived nearby for more than 22 years and been on it often, I’ve discovered fascinating new places you’ll want to know about. A silver lining of the pandemic is how it’s forced us to get to know our local spaces much better. I love travel and exploring faraway places. But I’ve learned that there’s a great deal to be learned closer to home.
We’ll be talking about the historic, scenic sections of the Bay Trail in Richmond. We’ll be joined by Richmond activist Najari Smith and County Sup. John Gioia, Najari successfully advocated for connecting trails to the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge to make it more safely accessible. John lives near the Trail and serves on the Bay Conservation and Development Commission and the SF Bay Restoration Authority.
