Park district has taken measures to protect birds
Joggers, picnickers and birdwatchers at Alameda’s Crown Beach will notice a recent installation in the landscape: cautionary signs that instruct beachgoers to stay at least 20 feet away from the roosting snowy plovers.
When Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS) was founded in 2009 to raise funds for the city-run animal shelter, nobody anticipated that a short three years later the organization would enter into a partnership with the city to operate the shelter in a public-private partnership.
Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS) assumed responsibility for the Alameda Animal Shelter just over two years ago on Jan. 1, 2012. Since then, FAAS has made great progress toward its goal of making the shelter a safe haven for homeless animals and a resource to the community.
