In the spring of 2001, students of the Claremont Colleges gathered in the middle of the night at the business office of the Claremont University Consortium. They chained themselves to trash cans filled with concrete and blocked all entrances to the building. This protest was in response to plans to develop the Bernard Biological Field Station, one of the last remaining pieces of coastal sagescrub habitat in Los Angeles County, a valuable educational resource and the site of a Tongva village. After this protest and the arrests of many students, the threat of development was forestalled for the next seven years.
