The conservation committee of our garden club was appalled that the Redwood City Council is seriously considering pursuing the Cargill/DMB plan to build a new city in the salt flats in an area that could be restored to tidal marsh. Beginning in October 2009, a Save the Bay representative gave our group a background slide presentation and since then has helped us develop a coordinated strategy for raising public awareness about the project drawbacks. The strategy entails writing letters to newspaper editors, speaking at city council meetings, and working with members of other conservation organizations. Save the Bay has supplied points to include in letters, web links to papers' editorial pages, dates of council meetings, introductions to other conservationists, and a ton of day-to-day support. We are delighted and impressed with Save the Bay's commitment and support.
