Environmentalist, educator, 350.org co-founder and author Bill McKibben will be at Fort Baker in the Golden Gate National Parks on Sunday, November 7, 2010, to discuss “Food for the Parks,” the latest environmental initiative of the Institute at the Golden Gate.
The Institute at the Golden Gate takes its message to “connect, collaborate, inspire and act” to the national stage next week as a cross-sector coalition of physicians, environmentalists, park managers, health insurers, government officials and youth leaders gather in Chicago to advance the growing Park Prescriptions movement.
The Redwood Creek Restoration Project at Muir Beach will continue this summer and fall, making the creek a functional, self-sustaining ecosystem once again by realigning the creek; restoring wetlands, an intermittent tidal lagoon, and dunes; and also creating and maintaining habitat for sustainable populations of the endangered coho salmon and threatened steelhead trout.
You've seen pianos nestled in the flora at the San Francisco Botanical Garden, providing unassuming stages to any talented (or amateur) passerby. Now you can find them tucked away somewhere even more unusual: underneath the Golden Gate Bridge.
