Nerd Out with Walk SF: Hayes Valley Caption WALC: Walking Around Linking Clues with Joel Pomerantz of Thinkwalks

From Walk SF:

Put on your your walking cap and your thinking socks, andjoin us May 7th for a special interactive tour of Hayes Valley!

This active and exciting Walk SF fundraiser will combine a specially-designed Thinkwalks tour of the Hayes Creek watershed with a cooperative game of mental recall and social interaction. Joel Pomerantz will lead a walk from Hayes Green to Alamo Square that incorporates photos, maps, and clues for you to figure out. Topics will cover historical geography, urban development, transportation, urban agriculture and population flows that reflect the economic and social boomtown excitement of San Francisco.

As we go, we’ll be playing a new game called Caption WALC! Work together and re-examine the information that we explore during the walk for the chance to win some amazing prizes. Every dollar raised will go toward Walk SF’s work to make our city’s streets better, safer places to walk.

Tickets to this special event are on sale now, so click here to reserve your spot today!
