SU 2013 – Mission Creek Walking Tour: Interpretations of Space, Time and Place

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.

COVID UPDATE

In response to the current COVID-19 situation, we require that all persons continue to wear masks at all times when in the Root Division space. For the safety of our students, artists, and extended community, we also require all students to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination (or same-day negative test results) for entry to classes held indoors at Root Division.

You may bring a physical copy of your vaccination card or via digital download through the State of California Digital Vaccine Record Portal here. (You may also provide a negative test result taken before each class session. Please contact us with any questions about the types of test results accepted.)

We ask this as a show of community care and a move towards continued safety while gathering in-person.
