Green Connections Walk: Birding at Heron’s Head Park with Josiah Clark

From SF Planning:

Green Connections is a new project about improving the City’s streets and routes that lead to our parks, waterfront and open spaces. The project team will host a variety of public events including walks, talks and meetings to engage communities in developing Green Connections.

A walk series has been developed to explore how people and wildlife connect to parks. Each walk has a theme and is located in a different part of the city. Please join us this walk (and other upcoming walks) to provide feedback about what you like along the way and how certain elements could be improved.
