Event description

Description

Leaders: Liam O'Brien, Loretta Brooks and Chuck Heimstadt

We will walk at a leisurely pace, but due to the uneven ground and steep trails, we recommend wearing sturdy shoes and long pants. Meet Saturday morning (11am) at Sign Hill's west entrance: from Oyster Point off 101, go west on Hillside/Sister Cities Blvd., turning off Hillside to Stonegate Drive and continue uphill to the left to Ridgeview Court with the cross street Carnelian at the end. There is a small parking lot there and street parking on the way up, and if necessary the Elks lot may be used for this short time. You may consider carpooling with friends. A forecast of wind or rain cancels until the next Saturday, May 11th. Please leave pets at home for this walk.

No need to sign up but please contact "chuckheimstadt@yahoo.com" with any questions.

Liam O'Brien is San Francisco's well-known lepidopterist, artist, illustrator, and Bay Nature's award-winning environmental educator.

Loretta Brooks and Chuck Heimstadt live on the edge of Sign Hill and have become its ardent stewards, and participants will benefit from their collective knowledge and enthusiasm.

We expect to see plenty of wildflowers with beautiful vistas, not to mention butterflies. A large portion of this grassland is protected with Sign Hill Park and the recently donated and acquired Friends of Liberty Park, but the other 26 acres, equally worthy of preservation, are privately owned and vulnerable to development.
