BUSY BIRDING SPRING

Here’s what my schedule looks like starting in Mid-March:

March 14th: Presentation to Golden Gate Audubon, open to public, pre-registration required.

San 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

March 17 and 18: Golden Gate Audubon Field Trips in San Francisco, pre-registration required.
Guided Field Trip with Harry Fuller
Saturday, March 17 and 8:30 am to 3:30 pm

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.
