Action Alert: Stop Cargill – Protect Our Bay Shoreline

Seven years ago, we stopped plans by agribusiness giant Cargill to build a massive new city of 30,000 people on top of the Redwood City salt ponds – historic San Francisco Bay wetlands that provide crucial habitat to tens of thousands of migratory shorebirds, and offer the region’s best opportunity for restoring San Francisco Bay.

However, Cargill is at it again – and has convinced the Trump Administration to remove important Clean Water Act protections for the salt ponds, and have announced that they will re-start efforts to develop this vital part of the Bay.

We can’t let that happen! Committee for Green Foothills – along with our partners at Save The Bay, Citizens Committee to Complete the Refuge, and Baykeeper – has filed a federal lawsuit to stop the Trump Administration from taking away critical protections from these salt ponds. We need your help.

Join us in telling Cargill, their developer DMB Associates, and the City of Redwood City that you support the full protection of these restorable wetlands.
