Natural Wonders of the City: Appreciating and Preserving San Francisco's Wildlands and Wildlife

Margo Bors, Board Member, California Native Plant Society, Yerba Buena Chapter; Nature Photographer and Artist
Peter Brastow, Founding Director, Nature in the City
Ruth Gravanis, Member, San Francisco Commission on the Environment; Long-time Natural Areas Advocate

Join us to explore the value and beauty of San Francisco's remaining indigenous habitats – grasslands, woodlands, coastal scrub, dunes, wetlands – and their native plant and animal life during our seasonal changes. We will discuss how these wildlands and biotic communities are threatened and the City's Natural Areas Program is working to preserve and restore them. We'll dispel the myths surrounding these small remnants left of our natural heritage for us and our children to appreciate and explore.
