INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

The Sharp Park Wetlands are home to the endangered California Red-Legged Frog and San Francisco garter snake, as well as numerous bird species.


California Red-legged Frog

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. SAVE THE FROGS! along with Wild Equity Institute and the Center for Biological Diversity are calling on the City of San Francisco to turn over Sharp Park to the its neighbor, the National Park Service.

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.
