Pollinator Week Volunteer Workparty & Walk: Tigers on Market St
June 25, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am| Free
Nature in the City is combining forces Pollinator Partnership and San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department to plant nectar-rich flowers at Sue Bierman Park for the Western Tiger Swallowtail butterflies that have made Market Street and nearby parks, privately-owned public open spaces (POPOS) and plazas their home.
We will be planting nectar flowers at Sue Bierman Park from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and taking a walk from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. to trace the butterfly’s habitat from Sue Bierman Park, along Market Street, and into Yerba Buena Park.
Light snacks, gloves, and tools will be provided. Volunteers please bring water, wear sturdy shoes, apply sunscreen, and wear a sunhat. For more information on this volunteer opportunity among others, please visit the website of Nature in the City. To RSVP, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 415-831-6333.
Founded in 2005, Nature in the City is San Francisco’s first organization wholly dedicated to ecological conservation, restoration and stewardship of the city’s bio-regions. The organization partners closely with the San Francisco Recreation & Parks Department Natural Resources Division on public education, community stewardship, and ecological restoration.
