Come along on a walking tour that will liberate you from guilt over not contributing to the World Wildlife Fund, the Sierra Club, Adopt-a-Bovine, and other environmental organizations. Mind you, we encourage you to donate to these organizations if you don't come on this walk surveying San Francisco social movements.

The upshot of the walk is that wild plants and animals don't need special care and attention from human beings, they simply need to be left loads of natural habitat, and the most thorough-going way to ensure pandas and redwood trees have plenty of habitat is to establish public policy that ensures humans use their own habitat optimally. If humans don't under-use urban land, then there isn't sprawl, and if there's no sprawl there's no suburban encroachment upon farmland, and if there's no suburban encroachment upon farmland, then farms don't invade wilderness. Aaaahhhh!

At last, then, the question is What non-invasive public policy kaboshes land speculation?

Answer: you'll find out on this walk. It's free . . . and might just save your donation should-have guilt.
