Nature lecture examines future of SF Bay
With its unique geographical positioning and rich wildlife, the San Francisco Bay is a national treasure. The next Valley of the Moon Nature Lecture series will explore this concept with the theme “The Extraordinary Future of San Francisco Bay” on Thursday, Feb. 28, at 7 p.m. at the Sonoma Valley Veterans Memorial Building.
Marc Holmes, program director with the San Francisco Bay Institute, will be the night’s guest speaker. He will discuss the potentials for the Bay, based on research conducted by the Bay Institute over recent decades. Where the Sierra Nevada streams meet the waters of the Pacific lies the San Francisco Bay, which provides our climate and sustains our regional economy. This global treasure is host to more than 750 species of fish, animals and birds, and home to 8 million people. The Bay Institute has directed the restoration and protection of this vast watershed for more than 30 years.
A $5 donation is sought at the door. The Valley of the Moon Nature Lecture Series is presented by the nonprofit SonomaBirding.com in partnership with the Sonoma County Regional Parks.
The lecture takes place at the Sonoma Valley Veterans Memorial Building at 126 First St. W., Sonoma.
