The City of San Francisco is now dredging the Sharp Park Wetlands, home of two endangered species, the California Red-Legged Frog and the San Francisco Garter Snake.
I just received this letter from an observer:
“Hi Kerry, At the Sharp Park golf course they have started dredging the connecting channel between Laguna Salada and Horse Stable Pond. We are concerned about the biological monitoring methods as described in my email below. It’s hard to imagine that frogs in the mud could be seen or removed from the dredge bucket. “

They are moving very quickly. Today they were dredging the connecting channel and raking the remains of the tule and cattail that had been cut down last week. One of the kids was using a machete on anything still standing.
