...At the beginning of the May [2015] Clayton Bass [SF botanical garden's CEO] put the kibosh on vehicle traffic... But Bass insists he's not limiting access. He's just limiting vehicle access..."We're not closing down the road. We're just saying if you want to see the preserve, then you're going to have to see it by foot.
