Liam O'Brien is San Francisco's well-known lepidopterist, artist, illustrator, and Bay Nature's award-winning environmental educator. Loretta Brooks and Chuck Heimstadt (SSF Weed Warriors) have become Sign Hill's ardent stewards, and participants will benefit from their collective knowledge and enthusiasm. Expect to see plenty of wildflowers with beautiful vistas, not to mention butterflies. A portion of this gorgeous grassland is protected with Sign Hill Park, but the other 47 acres, equally worthy of preservation, are privately owned and vulnerable to development.
Significant rain or wind cancels. The walk will be at a leisurely pace, but due to the uneven ground and steep trails, it is recommended to wear 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., turning off Hillside to Stonegate Drive and continue uphill to the left to Ridgeview Court with the cross street Carnelian at the end.
