Knowland Park (Ohlone Territory called Huchiun) is a 500-acre wildland open space in the Oakland hills, deeded to the City by the State in the 1970′s under the condition that it would always remain a public park.
Now the Oakland Zoo is trying to expand onto the park, fencing in a large portion of the area and cutting down dozens of trees, some of which are old growth Oaks. The park is home to many threatened and rare species of plants and animals such as the Alameda Whipsnake, The Great Horned Owl, and the Mountain Lion.
Defend Knowland Park! seeks to take direct action and put our bodies on the line to prevent the Zoo from privatizing this peice of Ohlone land.
