For the past 21 days, Muwekma Park (Muwekma is Ohlone for "People") has been offering free arboreal camping. There are plenty of vacancies available for either a "rugged hammock stay", or a "sophisticated platform suite" for those who like to vacation in style. Along with lodging, free vegan meals are provided; activities include birdwatching and chess.

There has been occasional rain, however the overall weather has been pleasant for November.

The tree-sit hopes to increase awareness of poverty rights, the right to sleep, and the right to user-developed open spaces. California continues to cut services to the poor, the disabled, and the disenfranchised, creating a widening gap between the classes. The Bay Area is losing its progressive edge and has broken its social contract with the poor.
