No on Prop D! Pissed Off Voter Guide Release Party!!

Join SFLCV and others at the League of Young Voters’ Pissed Off Voter Guide release party. SFLCV is co-sponsoring the event so come on down. The event is Friday night at Gestalt Haus on 16th street in the Mission (3159 16th Street), just a couple blocks from the 16th street BART station.

Why does SFLCV oppose Prop D?

In short its two things: we don’t think ads and signs make a neighborhood a better place, and it’s bad government. Complex planning code does not belong in the ballot box.

Join us for a Wildflower Walk (Sat, Mar 28th)

It’s that time of year when San Francisco’s natural parks are bursting with native flowers!  As part of San Francisco’s participation in the worldwide Earth Hour event on Saturday, March 28, SFLCV and the Recreation and Park Department’s Natural Areas Program invite you to a naturalist led wildflower walk on Bayview Hill, one of the city’s most amazing and little-known ecological gems.

Bayview Park is a 43.9 acre natural area with sweeping Bay views, including of Candlestick State Park and stadium.  The park supports perhaps the most diverse assemblage of plants and animals in the natural areas system. Its grassland has some of the most beautiful wildflower displays in San Francisco. Other plant communities in Bayview Park include coastal scrub, eucalyptus and oak groves, and the largest Islais cherry population in the city. On a sunny day you are likely to encounter western fence lizards, California alligator lizards, or one of many non-poisonous snakes, such as the San Francisco garter snake, Pacific gopher snake, or Pacific ring-neck snake. Red-tailed hawks are often seen soaring overhead. Great horned owls rest in the notches of trees during the day, and woodpeckers can be heard hammering for an insect snack.

Date: Saturday, March 28
Time: 10:30-12:00
Place: Bayview Hill.
We will meet at 10:30 the park entrance at the end of Key Avenue.
Please note that the walk to the top of Bayview Hill can be somewhat strenuous, and a gardener’s truck will be available to provide rides to the top for attendees requiring assistance.
