Looks like we're going to save
the golf course, and frog habitat
"City Council agreed to move San Francisco's Sharp Park Golf Course renovation plans forward by sending a letter to the Coastal Commission in support. San Francisco plans to make infrastructure improvements on the course as well as establish habitat for endangered species, the California red-legged frog and the California garter snake.

The habitat restoration work would include dredging Horse Stable Pond and the connection channel and creating a new frog pond south of Horse Stable Pond, per a recommendation from U.S. Fish and Wildlife. This plan would also allow golfers to continue to use the golf course as a recreational opportunity."  Read article.
