Re: Presidio Clarkia from Ralph

Ralph, thank you for sending the update that the clarkia is blooming and
about the development project. Would you be able to send more info on the
project going to be built by the city over the clarkia site? That is really
awful news. I'm really upset to hear about that and I would like to do
something about it. Are there action groups formed to protect the area from
development? Or any way to submit public comment?

I haven't visited the clarkia site in the east bay yet. If you have a trail
head or address to see it I'd like to visit.

Its blooming now in the Presidio and I have seen it. It's so beautiful.
