Looking at the City of San Francisco today, it can be hard to imagine a once wild and natural landscape. Within all of living memory, towering skyscrapers, iconic bridges, and busy streets have shaped the city. Before the metropolis, however, there was a remarkably unique landscape unlike any other in the region. Join us as we take a tour of San Francisco’s ecological past, walk through the process of discovering these stories of the past, and explore historical ecology’s potential to inform the future with nature-friendly urban design.
The San Francisco Estuary Institute (SFEI) is one of California’s premier aquatic and ecosystem science institutes. Their mission is to provide scientific support and tools for decision-making and communication through collaborative efforts. They provide independent science to assess and improve the health of the waters, wetlands, wildlife, and landscapes of San Francisco Bay, the California Delta, and beyond. SFEI’s 50 scientists and experts provide data, technology, and tools that empower government, civic, and business leaders to create cost-effective solutions for complex environmental issues–from cleaner water and sustainable communities to climate change. SFEI has three primary programs: Clean Water, Resilient Landscapes, and Environmental Informatics.
