All kids can learn about the Baylands these days is how much it stinks, how dangerous it is to be out there, and how impossible it is to carry on a conversation with airplanes flying overhead every minute.

If the city could just solve those three problems the Baylands might be a very nice place.

The Junior Naturalist program sounds like a winner! I suppose we are better equipped up here than the Environmental Education Center at the end of Grand Blvd in Alviso, which would be a much shorter trip for these kids. It's being closed for renovations this summer, so maybe next year!

Regarding danger, smell and noise, it all depends on what you are used to and your vested interests.

LOL, what is that supposed to mean?

My "vested interest" is being a Palo Alto resident that likes the use the Baylands for hiking and would like to see it be more pleasant for everyone. What is your "vested interest" in keeping the Baylands insecure, stinky and noisy?
