Learn about Linking Butterfly Habitat in the City of San Francisco at 10/28 Meeting


10/27/2008

Although it has a funny name, the Green Hairstreak Butterfly has a serious problem. This
San Francisco native's habitat is disappearing, and without certain species of host flowers nearby for its eggs, it simply won't lay them.

But our unlikely hero with emerald wings has motivated a community to save it, with a swath of wildflower communities that will connect two of its last remaining habitats and create The Green Hairstreak Corridor. Join us to learn about this nickel-sized native and the parks, people, and philosphy that are preserving its unique San Francisco ecosystem.

A panel discussion and presentation with California Native Plant Society, Nature in the City, San Francisco Parks Trust, and Liam O'Brien- a lepidopterist recently featured in the SF Chronicle. Hosted by Brent Dennis, Director of the Conservatory of Flowers.
