Park District Board Recognizes Employees for Service During Covid-19, Unprecedented Fire Season


On Tuesday, February 2, 2021, the East Bay Regional Park District Board of Directors unanimously approved a resolution recognizing the public service of the Park District’s frontline essential workers and first responders during the COVID-19 pandemic and the 2020 wildfire season in keeping the parks open and safe. With access to most public spaces limited during the pandemic, visitation to parks has increased – placing huge demands on park employees.

The Park District’s employees – park rangers, park supervisors, park craft specialists, park service attendants, gardeners, botanists, naturalists, sanitation crews, building and grounds aides, farmers, fleet maintenance, roads and trails crew, water utilities staff, stewardship staff, police officers, property and evidence staff, police services technicians, dispatchers, firefighters, aquatics staff, and the fuels crews –all responded to ensure that the Park District continues to fulfill its mission of providing parks and open space for health, recreation, and respite.
