Join us for a screening of A Dangerous Game, an explosive documentary from filmmaker and investigative journalist Anthony Baxter (You’ve Been Trumped), which examines the eco-impact of luxury golf resorts around the world, including one particularly deplorable course built by Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump. Featuring exclusive interviews with Alec Baldwin, Robert Kennedy Jr. and Donald Trump, the film takes viewers on a globe-spanning journey to a World Heritage site in Croatia; the extravagant desert city of Dubai, the explosion of new but supposedly illegal courses in China and back to the filmmaker’s native Scotland, where Donald Trump continues his controversial building.

You'll also have an opportunity to learn more about the work the Wild Equity Institute (http://wildequity.org/) is doing to protect endangered species from the threats posed by Sharp Park Golf Course (http://wildequity.org/sections/5), a municipal golf course located in Pacifica and owned by the city of San Francisco.

Watch the trailer here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0tUarO33Ac).

Note: On April 30, we'll be leading a hike at Mori Point (directly adjacent to Sharp Park golf course). We'll look for wildlife and talk more in depth about the problems the golf course is causing for the San Francisco Garter Snake and the California Red-legged Frog.
