Event description

Description

Explore the Green Hairstreak Butterfly Corridor and learn how this dune-system-obligated butterfly (once nearly locally-extinct in San Francisco) is now thriving with help from Nature in the City and volunteers in the Golden Gate Heights neighborhood.

Walk Leaders: Amber Hasselbring and Sarah Gomes

Amber is the Director of Nature in the City, and has been coordinating the care and stewardship of the Green Hairstreak Corridor since 2013.

Sarah will be starting her Master's program at San Francisco State studying how coastal fog and microclimates affect Green Hairstreak habitat.

Details:

Moderate difficulty with paved stairs and pathways and a few hundred feet elevation change. Total of 1.5 mile walking loop.

This walk will be great for kids! Only well-behaved dogs, on leash, please.

Preparation:

Sunhat, water, walking shoes and windbreaker. Bring cameras: perched in the bright sunlight, Green Hairstreaks are irresistible subjects for photos.

Meeting Location:

Bottom of the Moraga Tiled Steps at 16th and Moraga St.

Transportation:

Accessible by Muni 66 or a short walk from the Muni 28

Cost:

This walk is FREE to attend (with RSVPs kindly requested).

Donations (in cash) can be made to Nature in the City on the day of the event. Special bonus! Everyone who donates $10 and above will receive a copy of the Nature in the City Map or other fun materials.
