Green Hairstreak Butterfly Walk-May 9, 2009
From the fine folks at Nature in the City-
"Come take a walk to see the Green Hairstreak butterflies and lend a hand in restoring habitat for this rare and beautiful creature! The Green Hairstreak Butterfly once flew in abundance throughout San Francisco, but now is restricted to Hawk Hill & Rocky Outcrop overlooking the Sunset District, and the coastal dunes of the Presidio. The goal of the Green Hairstreak Project is to connect the two small butterfly populations by planting a community corridor of local native plants. Restoring interbreeding between the two populations above the Sunset will bolster their genetic diversity and viability."
Space is limited -- RSVP by phone or email required.
