Wear your ReWild Mission Bay shirt and join us at Civic Center Plaza at San Diego City Hall this Monday, June 24, beginning at 12:30 p.m. as we gather to go over talking points and speak with press ahead of the full San Diego City Council vote on lease recommendations in the northeast corner of Mission Bay, which could preclude wetland restoration efforts for years to come.
