Community Open House – Daylighting Upper Yosemite Creek in San Francisco

From SFPUC:

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission is considering daylighting the upper portion of Yosemite Creek which once flowed from McNab Lake to San Francisco Bay. This project would “daylight” the historic Yosemite Creek along the periphery of McLaren Park in close partnership with the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department and the local community. We need your help to identify the community’s priorities related to daylighting and restoring the historic Yosemite Creek, such as community space and nature habitat opportunities near McLaren Park. Join us for our first community open house to learn about creek daylighting and tell us what you would like to see.
