The Wilds of San Francisco and You
The San Francisco Naturalist Society welcomes Brent Plater, executive director of the Wild Equity Institute, for a photographic exploration of the remaining wild areas in San Francisco. San Francisco has 32 pockets of undeveloped land set aside for the preservation of the natural world. These pockets hold the last remnants of wildness once found across the lands where we now live. Do we have room in our parks and our hearts for nature in this city? Please join us to discuss the threats these natural areas face and learn how you can help these areas thrive.
Randall Museum, 199 Museum Way, San Francisco, CA (map), 7:30 pm.
Free and open to everyone.



Quote of the Day

"Among the scenes which are deeply impressed on my mind, none exceed in sublimity the primeval forests undefaced by the hand of one can stand in these solitudes unmoved, and not feel there is more in humans than the mere breath of his body."

-Charles Dawin
