SFEI and our partners from the Exploratorium, the San Francisco Department of the Environment, and the Presidio Trust were joined live by over 400 participants for a conversation around the nature, both past and present, that is hidden in plain sight in San Francisco. On Wednesday, February 24th, SFEI unveiled our mapping of San Francisco’s historical ecology and shared stories that uncover the mysteries of San Francisco’s ecological past. We then explored how these stories about the city’s past help us understand the ecology of the city today and reimagine a healthier and more resilient future. Visit our Hidden Nature SF project website to view the event recording and join us on our journey touring the past, present, and future of nature in San Francisco.
