Join Liam O'Brien, with Loretta Brooks and Chuck Heimstadt, for Spring on Sign Hill in South San Francisco. Liam O'Brien is San Francisco's well-known lepidopterist, artist, illustrator, and Bay Nature's award-winning environmental educator. Loretta and Chuck live on the edge of Sign Hill and have become its ardent stewards, and participants will benefit from their collective knowledge and enthusiasm.
We expect to see plenty of wildflowers with beautiful vistas, not to mention butterflies. A portion of this gorgeous grassland is protected within South San Francisco's Sign Hill Park, but the other 47 acres, equally worthy of preservation, are privately owned and vulnerable to development.
Significant rain or wind cancels - butterflies will not be out in that weather. We will walk at a leisurely pace, but due to the uneven ground and steep trails, we recommend wearing sturdy shoes and long pants. Meet Sunday morning (11am) at Sign Hill's west entrance: from Oyster Point off 101, go west on Hillside Blvd. to Stonegate Drive, turn off Hillside and continue uphill to the left to Ridgeview Court at the end.
