  • Saturday: Thinkwalks: Water Walking Tour. Join San Francisco natural historian Joel Pomerantz on an exploration of “the waterways that once coursed through the Mission District and the history of water in San Francisco. We’ll discuss their meandering locations and ecology, their implications for the growth of SF, their spring sources and controversial origins.” 10:30 am.

Just after Sunday Streets, have a drink at Buck Tavern on Market and Gough Streets to benefit the San Francisco Transit Riders Union, a coalition “working to unite current and future transit riders for an excellent, affordable, and growing public transit system. You’ll have a chance to socialize with transit riders and activists from all over San Francisco.” 4 to 6 pm.
