's 80th Anniversary celebration and tournament on Saturday, May 19 will be raucous indeed.
In addition to the tournament, which tees off at 12p.m., golf supporters will enjoy drinks, appetizers, a raffle and silent auction, guest speakers and the beat of protestors drumming in the parking lot.
Save The Frogs!, a Santa Cruz-based nonproft that aims to protect all frogs on Earth, has scheduled a public protest of the alleged killings of the California Red-Legged Frog, a threatened species, during golf-related activites at Sharp Park.
The organization has strategically scheduled drumming sessions on Saturday to sonically interfere with the celebration of the course's 80th anniversary.
"We will be drumming and educating people about frogs from 11am-1pm and again from 4:30pm to 6:30pm," the nonprofit wrote on the announcement for the protest, called Drumming For The Frogs! "These times coincide with the golfing tee-off and post-tournament festivities. We encourage everybody to attend both sessions (have lunch or take a hike in between). We strongly encourage everyone to attend the 4:30pm-6:30pm session, as that is when the golf-loving politicians and keynote speakers will be passing through the parking lot, and our presence will have the strongest impact."
The alleged killings of frogs and San Francisco Garter snakes, an endangered species, has been a source of controversy for years. Most recently, it's been elevated to a filed by environmentalists against the City of San Francisco, which owns and operates the course, over alleged Endangered Species Act violations.
