Help Save The Sharp Park Wetlands!
Please send the letter below and urge the City of San Francisco to vote YES on legislation that would shut down the city's frog-killing Sharp Park Golf Course and turn the Sharp Park Wetlands over to the National Park Service. Thanks!
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors will vote December 5th, 2011 on legislation that will shut down the Sharp Park Golf Gourse and give management of the Sharp Park Wetlands to the National Park Service. Victory is on the horizon, but we need you to make your voice heard...this will be a close vote!
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. 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. The legislation being voted on came at the request of 1,359 SAVE THE FROGS! supporters who sent letters to the City of San Francisco asking them to save the Sharp Park Wetlands, and 100 people who attended our Save The Frogs Day Rally at the steps of City Hall. Special thanks to the Wild Equity Institute for all their efforts on this important campaign.
Your letter will be sent to the Mayor of San Francisco and the Board of Supervisors. Please edit the subject line and content to improve the likelihood of your letter being opened and read.
