BAY AREA EVENTS IN MARCH

I will be doing several events in the Bay Area in mid-March.  Three are through the auspices of the Golden Gate Audubon Society (GGAS).

SFNH COVERSan Francisco’s Natural History.
A course by Harry Fuller.   
March 14, 2018 from 7pm-8:30pm.
$10 GGAS member, $20 non-member

This fascinating presentation will move across three centuries of observation and change in the wildlife and ecology of San Francisco. Once rattlesnakes ruled Telegraph Hill and a grizzly bear was seen swimming across Mission Creek. Today most creeks are underground and exotic trees fringe the horizon. We will look at the introduced, the invasive, the survivors and the prospects of the future. From nano-plastic pollution to climate change, people now can alter the future of all living organisms in the environment. The banning of DDT in 1974 and the subsequent return of Brown Pelicans and Peregrine can be a road map to where we should go now.

Class will be held at the Google Community Space, Main Event Room, 188 The Embarcadero (enter on Steuart Street, San Francisco CA 94105

Copies of Harry’s new book, San Francisco’s Natural History: Sand Dunes to Streetcars, has just been published and will be available for purchase.

Guided Field Trip with Harry Fuller
Saturday, March 17 and 8:30 am to 3:30 pm.  Limited to 20 people ; $50 GGAS members, $75 non-member price
Harry will lead participants to some key places in San Francisco’s Natural History, including Land’s End & Sutro Heights, Tennessee Hollow and El Polin Spring in the Presidio, Crissy Field, and Lake Merced. What would have been here in 1750? How have these places changed over time? Why is each location notable now? What may lie ahead? How can we make a difference in the future of Natural San Francisco?

Trip will happen regardless of the weather.

We will carpool from our first meeting site. Participants will need to bring layered clothing for the ever-changing SF weather; water, lunch and snacks; and, of course, binoculars.
More details and Information about meeting place will be sent to participants a week before the trip.

I will also be giving as talk at the Lindsay Museum in Walnut Creek.  This will be about Great Gray Owls, the evening of March 16th.  Lindsay has the only captive Great Gray Owl in the state of California as far as I know.  You can hear the talk and meet the owl.  Her name is Shadow.
