Help protect the biologically rich Gallinas wetlands from the massive proposed airport development.
The Gallinas Creek watershed in Marin County is home to one of the largest populations of federally endangered California clapper rails in the north bay.
Nestled between historic China Camp State Park and the Hamilton Field restoration site, the watershed is also home to the salt marsh harvest mouse, black rail and steelhead trout.
The 2.5 acre San Rafael aiport project, a proposed two-story, Walmart-size indoor and outdoor sports complex, would bring light and noise pollution, toxic runoff, increased traffic and excessive disturbance to the marsh and creek. It belongs nearer to transportation and far from fragile wetlands.
