Join Planet Drum Foundation staff, friends, and family for our monthly Workshop-Workday to continue community engagement in place-based projects in San Francisco. This month we will join community members and Nature in the City staff to restore critical habitat and envision plans for San Francisco's endemic Green Hairstreak Butterfly's future.

The primary goal of the Hairstreak Project is to connect two separate butterfly populations in the Sunset District with street level plantings of host and nectar sources. If the two populations can interbreed, their genetic viability and diversity will be more secure. So come out, learn more about the Green Hairstreak butterfly, meet some of the devoted neighborhood site stewards, and envision how you want to restore habitat for creatures in your neighborhood.

Bring comfortable closed-toe shoes, water, and a camera.
