The Golden Gate National Parks contains more endangered species than any other National Park in continental North America. This is certainly cause for celebration, but also for concern. The Golden Gate National Parks Endangered Species Big Year is a race against time to observe each of the 36 endangered and threatened species found within the Golden Gate National Parks, while taking 36 discrete conservation recovery actions that will help prevent these species from going extinct. It is a free competitive event where the person who sees and helps the most species between January 1, 2010 and December 31, 2010, will win the Big Year. Celebrate the incredible diversity of life around you by taking part in the Big Year and get to know these species while helping them recover. Go online to http://www.wildequity.org and signup for the Big Year and go to the calendar to see the upcoming Big Year trips and activities.
The 2010 Golden Gate National Parks Endangered Species Big Year begins January 1, 2010 The kick-off celebration is January 9, 2010 at 1pm-3pm at the Presidio Sports Basement, 610 Old Mason Street, San Francisco, CA, 94129 and followed by a walk to see the threatened Snowy Plovers at Crissy Field. It is free and open to the public. If you want to make a day of it, you can also join us for a morning bike ride with the San Francisco Bike Coalition to see even more of the Park’s endangered flora and fauna. The ride begins at 9:30 a.m. at the Bazaar Café on California Street at 21st Avenue, San Francisco.
