Field Trips

We have cancelled all field trips through June 2020 (at least) while we shelter-in-place but hope to resume the field trips once the ban is lifted and the City declares it is safe to proceed. If you have any questions, please contact the leader of the trip you are interested in.

The Natural Wonders of Glen Canyon
Leader: Paul Bouscal, CNPS Board member and California Naturalist

Join us on a summer hike to explore this canyon in the midst of residential neighborhoods. Glen Canyon is one of San Francisco’s significant natural resource areas containing a variety of vegetation including forbs, grasslands, shrubs, willows and other trees. At this time of year we hope to see summer wildflowers in bloom.  The park features rock formations, and it is the source of Islais Creek. We will walk and view parts of this 70-acre park to enjoy the flora, fauna and natural history.

Meet at Elk and Chenery Streets. This is approximately a 10-minute walk from the Glen Park BART station. In San Francisco layers of clothing are recommended.
Contact Paul at bouscalp@yahoo.com, or call 650-438-9109 if you have questions.

 

 

 August 6, THURSDAY 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm (timed to be prior to the speaker program)
