The Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment announced their continued support of the Wild Equity Institute and our campaign to restore Sharp Park on December 14, 2010.
“We are grateful for the Rose Foundation’s generous grant,” said Brent Plater, executive director of the Wild Equity Institute. We’re proud of the diverse coalition we’ve built to restore Sharp Park, and the Rose Foundation’s support will help us continue this important work.”
The Wild Equity Institute is working to transform Sharp Park from a money losing, endangered species killing golf course into a public park that naturally adapts to sea level rise, protects coastal communities from flooding events, recovers endangered species, and provides recreational access everyone can enjoy.
A Restoration Vision for Sharp Park.
The Wild Equity Institute received a $3,000 grant from the Rose Foundation’s Northern California Environmental Grassroots Fund. The purpose of this fund is to support small groups tackling difficult environmental problems. The funding will support the Wild Equity Institute’s education, advocacy, and litigation, all aimed at restoring Sharp Park.
