Exciting NEWS! The SF Public Utilities Commission is hosting a meeting to get public input about land use at Lake Merced in San Francisco. One Scenario being proposed is to not renew the lease of the gun club at Lake Merced, and found SF's first wildlife hospital! I hope you will all help me reach out to those who can come to this meeting, to help make this possible. Public input is critical.

San Francisco is one of the few Bay Area counties without a wildlife hospital. Birds currently receive care outside county – often involving delays which affects birds’ chances of survival.
San Francisco has extraordinarily rich biological diversity. 1.6 million water birds use our coastline annually, and of the hundreds of bird species visit or live here. 70% of our songbirds are “in peril due to loss of habitat” according to the 2007 Audubon Society report.
We need a wildlife hospital in San Francisco!
The Public Utilities Commission (PUC) is going through a public process to determine future land use around Lake Merced. The public is asked to comment on two land use scenarios:
1. Wildlife Hospital And Nature Education Center, (including picnic areas, bird and butterfly gardens and more) + boating facilities (new use)
2. Gun Club skeet and trap shooting (existing) and boating facilities
The land use decision at Lake Merced will be made by the PUC, based largely on public input.
