Help Save The Sharp Park Wetlands!
Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
The Sharp Park Wetlands are home to the endangered California Red-Legged Frog and San Francisco garter snake, as well as numerous bird species. Unfortunately, in 1931 the City of San Francisco built a golf course on top of the wetlands. The golf course has been killing endangered frogs and costing the City's taxpayers money ever since. SAVE THE FROGS! along with Wild Equity Institute and the Center for Biological Diversity are calling on the City of San Francisco to turn over Sharp Park to its neighbor, the National Park Service. Our vision is a new Sharp Park: a public park that protects endangered species, restores wetland habitat, ends wasteful spending and is accessible to all.
Please Send This Letter to the Mayor of San Francisco
Please write the Mayor of San Francisco and urge him to turn the Sharp Park Golf Course over to its next door neighbor, the National Park Service. Thanks!
Save The Frogs Day Rally in San Francisco
Please join SAVE THE FROGS! and the Wild Equity Institute for a Save The Frogs Day Rally at the steps of San Francisco's City Hall to raise awareness of the ecological destruction being caused by the City's failure to properly manage the Sharp Park Wetlands. Come hear speakers and visit our informational tables to find out how we can have a Sharp Park that protects endangered species, restores habitat, ends wasteful spending and is accessible to all. This event is free and open to the public. Please bring your friends and co-workers! See you at City Hall 12pm April 29th!
Join a hike at Sharp Park - April 30th
Please join the Wild Equity Institute Saturday April 30th in honor of Save The Frogs Day to search for two of the most imperiled vertebrate species on the San Francisco peninsula: the California Red-Legged Frog and the San Francisco garter snake. This will be a leisurely walk through the Sharp Park area to learn about the bold steps being taken to save both species from the brink of extinction and to create a better public park at Sharp Park. The hike is free & open to the public.
