Join Michele Laskowski and Chelsea Dicksion of the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy to hear the story of the last wild Presidio (aka Raven’s) Manzanita (Arctostaphylos hookeri ssp. ravenii) and view the seeds and pictures of the plant. Learn how the last individual was discovered and the heroic efforts biologists are taking to germinate the Manzanita’s seeds to continue the lineage. This trip counts as a Big Year sighting only and not an action item for the Presidio Manzanita. Meet at the Presidio Native Plant Nursery, 1244 Appleton Street at Ruckman Aveune, San Francisco, 94129, in the Presidio. RSVP within the trip info: http://wildequity.org/events/3092.
Part of the GGNP Endangered Species Big Year, a race against time to see and save the Park’s endangered species. For more info: http://wildequity.org and see the calendar for upcoming Big Year trips and activities.

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. Take part in the 2010 GGNP Endangered Species Big Year and get to know these species while helping them recover. It is free. For more information go to http://wildequity.org and see the calendar for upcoming Big Year trips and activities.
