Bay seniors, despite the closing of too many State parks, have to be encouraged by the impressive list of activities cooked up this summer by the ever imaginative East Bay Parks District. Does any other organization offer Bat Monitoring in an abandoned mine? What about Rope Making and Hay Hoisting, Farm Laundering and Victorian Tabletop games? This is an addition to dozens of more conventional programs like Fly Fishing and a Zydeco Festival. Cool, yes?
