Drive to save East Bay landmark clears big hurdleMay 1, 2019
MORAGA, Calif. (KGO) -- In the next few decades, the population in the East Bay is expected to increase dramatically. The need for more open spaces will be apparent.
There is one piece of land right now in Moraga called "Painted Rock" which conservationists are trying to preserve, but they only have 30 days to raise the money to secure the land.
These painted boulders on this 84-acre property serve as a landmark. For decades they've been used by students at Campolindo High School in Moraga as a way to express their views.
"Painted Rock has been there forever. Our kids go out there and paint messages and it's a fun thing for them to be doing to celebrate something," explained Sunun Faulkner, a parent here.
