Discover McLaren Park’s Green Connectors
November 7, 2015 @ 8:00 am
Join Amber Hasselbring, director of Nature in the City, to learn about the San Francisco’s ‘Green Connections’ network.
Green Connections is a 20-year city plan, developed in 2013 with the input of community members, to create a citywide network of streets that help connect people to parks, open space, and the waterfront. The plan includes 25 routes, totaling 115 miles, each host to a special San Francisco species of flora or fauna, or natural habitat.
November’s walk will begin at the Reservoir in John McLaren Park (refer to WHERE below).
The hike will guide walkers to discover five of the city’s Green Connection routes, including the Yosemite Creek, highlighting Red-winged Blackbirds, the Folsom/Mission Creek supporting a variety of pollinators, the Crosstown Trail for coyotes, the Ingleside including Coast Live Oak and California Buckeye trees, and finally the Lake Merced/Candlestick, which supports the Western Fence Lizard. All of five of these routes traverse McLaren Park, the second largest, and most wild park in San Francisco.
