In-Person Lecture – Daylighting springs, creeks, and marshes: 20 years of wetland restoration in the Presidio of San Francisco

Saturday, December 10 at 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm PST

On Saturday, December 10th at 3 pm, the Friends of San Pedro Valley Park welcome Lewis Stringer. He will discuss the decades long effort to restore the Tennessee Hollow Watershed and Mountain Lake. Topics will include ecological design, revegetation, invasive species control, water quality and ecological monitoring. Innovative wildlife reintroductions that help improve ecological function, such as the restoration of California floater mussels and Olympia oysters will also be discussed.

This talk will take place indoors at the SPVP Visitor Center as we resume our in-person program of educational lectures (masks will be optional). Please join us for what promises to be a very interesting and informative talk.
