The Watersheds of Laguna Honda Ride

From Thinkwalks:

Come enjoy a one and a half mile meander to explore the little-mentioned watershed of 7th Avenue. Before the sewers came along a century ago, dunes in Golden Gate Park absorbed the runoff from the valleys west of Twin Peaks. On its way to those dunes, the water pooled in one of SF’s original lakes, Laguna Honda, now an abandoned reservoir.

Please join us, along with your knowledge and spark—and your bicycle—at the front entrance of the Forest Hill Muni Metro station at 1:00pm. We’ll end at the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park at 3:00 p.m. RSVP required.

Please RSVP (using the comment/reply box below (call 415-505-8255, if it’s day-of-event).
