Butterflies of Sign Hill, Apr13

Liam O'Brien, San Francisco's "Butterfly Guy" (sfbutterfly.com), is excited to explore Sign Hill in South San Francisco. He will give an enthusiastic in-field course in Butterfly 101 while we explore Sign Hill’s plant communities in search of some of the first Mission Blues (Icarica icariodes missionensis, an endangered species) of the season.

Join us to learn butterfly behavior, host plants, how to distinguish between Mission Blues and Silvery Blues (Glaucopsyche lygdamus), and more.

Co-leaders Chuck Heimstadt and Loretta Brooks are active SBMW volunteers and also members of the Yerba Buena Chapter of the California Native Plant Society. They have an intimate interest in Sign Hill - it's in their backyard!

Sunday, April 13th

11am to 1:30pm

— postpones to April 27th in case of overcast, windy weather or rain —

Bring lunch; we will take a break and enjoy the view. Meet at 11am at the Stonegate (west) entrance to Sign Hill Park - exit off Hillside Boulevard in SSF onto Stonegate Drive and continue uphill and to the left until you reach the end of Ridgeview Court. There is a small parking area with 7 spaces and plenty of street parking.

Butterflies only fly when it’s sunny, so overcast skies or stiff breezes or rain will postpone the walk to Aril 27th. Contact: Chuck Heimstadt and Loretta Brooks at chuckheimstadt@yahoo.com.

Saving Sign Hill is the focus of a major advocacy effort by San Bruno Mountain Watch. Visit our Sign Hill pages for more information.
