Leader: Shelly Benson
Date: Saturday, 13 February 2016, 10 am to 1 pm
Location: Pershing Square, Presidio of San Francisco
This is a joint field trip with the Yerba Buena Chapter of the California Native Plant Society. This Valentine’s weekend we’re going to the big city. Grab your sweetheart and come for a romantic stroll in the Presidio of San Francisco and contemplate the symbiotic relationship that is a lichen. Lichens grow everywhere, even in the big city. We’ll observe some interesting patterns in lichen where lichens growing or don’t grow.
Meet in Pershing Square, on Arguello Blvd at the south end of the Main Post. The PresidiGo shuttle lines stop at the Transit Center (215 Lincoln Blvd) at the Main Post, and the Muni 43 bus stops nearby on Presidio Blvd. If there’s significant rain, we’ll try again on February 20.
