Islais Creek Watershed Walk

From WalkSF:

Join Walk SF to discover the Islais Creek Watershed!

Learn about the Islais Creek Watershed’s walking, greening, and creek daylighting opportunities, and about the Bernal Heights Living Library & Think Park Nature Walk, a small part of the Watershed on the south side of Bernal Heights. With almost 600 California Native Trees planted, and more to go with native understory and interpretive signage, the Living Library Nature Walk is linking local schools, parks, public housing, streets, and other open spaces, all leading to the Islais Creek at the south end of St. Mary’s Park. A future goal is to enlarge the Nature Walk to Frame the Islais Creek Watershed, the largest in SF, linking at least 11 communities: Noe Valley, Mission, Bernal Heights, Potrero Hill, Bayview, Portola, Crocker-Amazon, Excelsior, OMI. Sunnyside, Glen Park.

Meet at 10 AM in front of Junipero Serra Child Development Center, 155 Appleton, between Mission Street and Holly Park Circle. This is two blocks south of Cortland, near the 49 and 14 bus lines and the J Church. There will be some hills, so be prepared!

Free for members, $10 for nonmembers.
