The 2010 Golden Gate National Parks Endangered Species Big Year begins January 1, 2010! Celebrate the incredible diversity of life around you by participating in the 2010 GGNP Endangered Species Big Year Kick-off Celebration on January 9, 2010 at 1pm at the Sports Basement in the Presidio.
We’ll present a short description of the competition, enjoy some complimentary Arizmendi pizza and snacks, see a live San Francisco garter snake courtesy of the San Francisco Zoo, and then take a short hike to search for the Western Snowy Plover at the Crissy Field Wildlife Protection Area. The Sports Basement is also giving Big Year participants 10% off on items purchased at the store this day, and donating another 10% to the Wild Equity Institute!
And if you want to make a day of it, 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! This ride will travel to a few locations and check in on a variety of imperiled birds, mammals, and plants before ending at the Sports Basement in the Presidio to join the kick-off party for the 2010 Endangered Species Big Year. Rain cancels the bike ride, but not the kick-off party! The ride begins at 9:30am at the Bazaar Cafe on California St. at 21st Ave.
