Event Details

The Mission Creek Conservancy will present the second edition of Vanished Waters: A History of San Francisco’s Mission Bay, and discuss the tangled history of Mission Bay’s past.

The history of Mission Bay is the story of the gradual filling-in of a vast tidal cove in San Francisco Bay. Covered with shallow waters of Mission Bay, edged with tidal salt-marshes and receiving fresh water from meandering Mission Creek, this broad, sunny expanse of real estate has over the last 130 years at­tracted a wide variety of would-be settlers, imaginative speculators, and visionary planners.
