The Paths We Take


Trail at Hawk Hill

Through the Parks Conservancy's Migratory Story program, Francis Taroc and his team visit classrooms to teach youth about raptor anatomy and migration, connecting biology lessons to immigrant experiences. 

During these sessions, Taroc shares his family’s story, asks questions to inspire the children to talk about theirs, and leads a discussion about how immigrants contribute to San Francisco’s culture, food, and economy. “It allows them to have that space and almost the permission to share their stories in a climate that sometimes really frowns upon migrants.”
