Tiburon Salmon Institute in Jeopardy
We just received this urgent message from Rex Board Member Rosalie Howarth, reporting that Rex grantee the Tiburon Salmon Institute is being evicted from its longtime home due to an apparent real estate deal by San Francisco State University, the landlord. The Marin Independent Journal quotes Congressman Jared Huffman, who calls the move: “A little community-supported salmon group with no budget, operating out of the back of Brooke Halsey’s truck, being squashed by a huge university bureaucracy far removed from the community and stubbornly standing by one person’s bad decision.”
After the Tiburon Salmon Institute was abruptly evicted (30 days notice), Brooke Halsey of the Tiburon Salmon Institute has recruited a growing team of local leaders and representatives to protest this sneaky back-room deal. If you remember, the org trains students to raise and releases native salmon into the Bay, preserving the species and educating the students in aquatic life cycles.
He has asked for Rex’s help in spreading the word and the petition.

Thanks from all of us at Rex!
