Healthy wetlands provide habitat for Bay wildlife; protect communities from sea-level rise, storms and flooding; filter runoff pollution and provide open space for people to walk, bike and kayak. Building a new city on these salt ponds would represent a step back to a time when the Bay was filled without a second thought. If similar development proposals had not been stopped by concerned citizens, the Bay would be a narrow river instead of the beautiful body of water that gives our region its identity.

There is a petition to urge the Redwood City Council to reject Cargill’s massive salt pond development proposal because it will harm San Francisco Bay, wildlife and the region’s quality of life. We must all stand together to show Minnesota-based agribusiness giant Cargill that we will not allow our great natural treasure to be sacrificed for profit.

Please join the GESC Board in taking action today.  Sign the petition at:
