February 2015 - Network, Walk and Talk with Nature in the City
Join WEN and tour an urban wildlife corridor that was created by Nature in the City, neighbors, and schoolchildren to support the recovery of the Green Hairstreak butterfly.
When: Saturday February 21, 2015
12:00 - 1:00 PM: Meet and network with other WEN members while enjoying free Arizmendi Bakery pastries or your own "brown bag" lunch. Thanks Arizmendi!
1:00 - 2:00 PM: A walk and talk through the Green Hairstreak Corridor with Amber Hasselbring, Executive Director of Nature in the City. We will begin the walk promptly at 1:00 PM!

Closest Transit: N Judah Line (map)
Cost: $10 plus service fee (a portion of the proceeds will go to Nature in the City)
Recently featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, The Green Hairstreak Corridor is a community initiative started in 2007 to connect two butterfly populations that had become isolated by urban development. Green Hairstreaks fly in spring, from January through May, so if conditions are right, we might see flying, basking, mating, and egg-laying! The tour will begin at the Moraga Tiled Steps, which is Nature in the City's newest habitat restoration site. Then we’ll walk along the Corridor to 12 habitat patches and three natural areas. The tour will be a loop
Additional volunteer opportunity with Nature in the City:
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM: If you would like to arrive early and participate in hands-on restoration work with Nature in the City, please sign up on the Nature in the City Meetup page.
