Please join SAVE THE FROGS! in San Rafael, California on Thursday April 16th and speak up on behalf of endangered California Red-Legged Frogs, our official state amphibian! The City of San Francisco has applied for a permit to dredge and drain the Sharp Park Wetlands. Their goal is to create dry land for a publicly-funded, money-losing golf course. Our goal is to stop them! The City’s draining activities kill the Red-Legged Frogs as well as the endangered San Francisco Garter Snakes.

On April 16th, the California Coastal Commission will meet to determine whether they should grant the City a permit to drain the Sharp Park Wetlands. The Commission welcomes public comments, so it is up to you to make your voice heard, lest the Commission decide to side with the status quo of environmental destruction. This is our best chance to stop the draining and save our state amphibian.

Please RSVP here so that we know you are coming:

SAVE THE FROGS! will be joined by Wild Equity Institute, National Parks Conservation Association, the Sierra Club and other groups. We will brief you on some simple statements you can make in front of the Commission that will provide huge benefit for the frogs and snakes. This is our best opportunity to stop this misguided project and we need your attendance to help these amazing amphibians.
