Through concepts of physical and metaphorical geographies, this tour seeks to create dialogue around the city of San Francisco’s physical, social and time-based morphology. The walking tour will begin at Pac Bell Park and end at Root Division, leading participants through the streets of San Francisco along the route of Mission Creek. Nature in the City will discuss the San Francisco Planning Department's plans for part of the route along 17th Street. The City plans a "Green Connection" – for pedestrians, bicycles, and habitat – named for the Anise Swallowtail butterfly.
Participants will learn about the urban development of San Francisco, the water systems that flow under the city, and the plant and animal life along the way. Participants will receive an interactive tour guide with historical and contemporary maps, photographs and illustrations of the tour and sites along its route.
