Join the Wild Equity Institute at the Eric Quezada Center for Culture and Politics to celebrate October 5: the day the Franciscan Manzanita finally becomes protected under the federal Endangered Species Act!

The Franciscan Manzanita, which for over 40 years was thought to be extinct in the wild, was rediscovered in the Presidio in 2009. But because it was presumed extinct, the Endangered Species Act didn’t protect this rare plant.

So the Wild Equity Institute successfully pushed to extend Endangered Species Act protection to the Franciscan Manzanita, ensuring that the world’s most powerful conservation tools would be available as we restore this species.

There will be food and music, and another too rare event: an opportunity to celebrate with dozens of great people like you, people working to build a healthy and sustainable global community for all! $5 donation requested at the door, but no one turned away for lack of funds.
