Drawbridge Van Excursion
Saturday, October 22, 2016 from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
An abandoned town in the San Francisco Bay? That’s right! Nestled on an island in the salt marshes of South San Francisco Bay, the town of Drawbridge once boomed. Was it a quiet, peaceful town full of nature lovers, or people scrabbling out a living? How long did it exist? Find out at this program, led by Ceal Craig, our Drawbridge expert. Start with a slide show, and then take a short van excursion to view Drawbridge across Coyote Creek. Program will be of most interest to adults interested in history or nature; children 13 and over with an adult are welcome. Space is very limited. RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. (Note: we do not visit the town itself – we go to the closest spot that one can legally view Drawbridge.)
IF SPOTS ARE FILLED ON EVENTBRITE - ADD YOURSELF TO THE WAITLIST FOR THE VAN TOUR AS PEOPLE FREQUENTLY DO NOT SHOW.
VAN SPOTS WILL BE OFFERED ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS.
NO NEED FOR RESERVATIONS TO ATTEND THE HISTORY PORTION 10:00 - 11:00 (YOU CAN WALK OUT TO THE LOCATION IF VAN IS FULL)
RAIN WILL CANCEL THE VAN PORTION OF THE PROGRAM.
