Event Details

Exploring Nature in the San Francisco Bay Area: Lecture Series | SF

The SF Natural History Series lecture series explores all aspects of nature in the Bay Area, and seeks to understand our impact both past and present on those natural systems, and their impact on us.

Talks take place at different venues around the city and are sometimes scheduled with little notice, so check their blog to stay tuned to the latest updates. The lectures are free, but an RSVP is typically requested.

Which is more likely in San Francisco: wading through a creek or through traffic? Under the right circumstances, either is possible to do. This will be the first of three summer talks partnering with the Exploratorium Bay Observatory Gallery.

, but an RSVP is required by email to reserve@exploratorium.edu or by calling 415-528-4444 option 5.

Sometimes, when atmospheric rivers slam the region, we can do both at once, as street gutters fill to capacity. But San Franciscan residents have few if any natural creek experiences. Compare that to the creek-dependent lives of the people that lived here for thousands of years before urban development and you might start to wonder.

Bring your curiosity and wonder for this discussion-oriented presentation by Joel Pomerantz, an independent researcher and publisher of the Seep City water explorations map. He will give tips on reading the landscape in search of water, and tell you where some of our beautiful (if small) springs are.

The lecture will be at the Exploratorium Bay Observatory Gallery at the back of the museum. The special event entrance is through the gate on the outside of building, past the main entrance (as depicted in the map). Someone should be out front helping guide (the museum itself will not be open). Please visit the Exploratorium website for directions to the museum.
