Subject: Response to City of Oakland's letter dated January 13, 2005

Directors Cappio and Godinez:

Our letter dated February 1, 2005 provided our initial response to the
City of Oakland's letter dated January 13, 2005, and promised a more
substantive response by February 11, 2005. Unfortunately, in setting
the February 11, 2005 deadline we failed to allocate sufficient time to
other litigation deadlines and activities related to moving our offices
into San Francisco. Given these other commitments, we expect to
provide a more thorough response by February 18, 2005.

Please note that as of February 14, 2005, our new address and contact
information will be

Natural Heritage Institute
100 Pine Street, Suite 1550
San Francisco, CA 94104
Tel: (415) 693-3000
Fax: (415) 693-3178

Thank you for your consideration.


Julie Gantenbein
