ReWild’s Local Support Continues To Grow

These past two weeks have been a great reminder of how big the momentum to ReWild Mission Bay has grown! Urban Corps and St. Dunstan’s Church just joined our ReWild Coalition, bringing us well beyond 60-member organizations and businesses.

A wonderful program at La Jolla High School and Riford Library gave local student Nicole Nunes the chance to win the Pitch Your Passion competition with her advocacy for ReWild Mission Bay and wetland restoration. Thanks to Councilmember LaCava and San Diego Libraries, and especially to Nicole, a future leader!

We were also just contacted by HighTechHigh Mesa who have chosen ReWild Mission Bay as the recipient of their Environmental Health Exhibition fundraiser. They are shining a light on the value that art, education, and wetland restoration can bring to combating environmental racism and toxic air pollution in our communities.

Just last month, our Coalition member SD Pediatricians for Clean Air wrote an article about the connection between human health and habitat health.

And in case you missed the King Tides this past weekend, San Diego Audubon was at FAA Island restoring habitat for California Least Terns, and  we were out at Rose Creek (y en espanol) with Friends of Rose Creek talking about how king tides are a dramatic visual of coming sea level rise. Thanks to the elected officials and candidates that made it out to highlight the infrastructure and opportunity at the mouth of Rose Creek.

All of this shows how strong our Coalition is, how powerful our case is, and how clearly we are demanding a restored, contiguous, and accessible tidal wetland at the mouth of Rose Creek!

Take the time to act to push ReWild over the finish line — call or email the Mayor’s office and let them know that we want restored, contiguous, and accessible tidal wetlands in the ReWild Mission Bay area!
