Featured Presentation:

  • Topic: Thirty-five Years of Waterbird Conservation in the San Francisco Bay
  • Presenter: Max Tarjan of the SFBBO
  • Presentation Summary: The San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory (SFBBO) is a nonprofit dedicated to the conservation of birds and their habitats through science and outreach. The San Francisco Bay Area provides important habitat for nesting and migratory birds despite having lost an estimated 90% of historic tidal marsh habitat to development. Since 1981, SFBBO has worked with Bay Area citizens to study and protect the area’s remaining waterbirds and their habitats.

Transportation & Parking: You can take BART to the 16th & Mission station; it’s a short three-block walk to the Women’s Building. If you must drive all the way, we have a special arrangement that allows us to park in the Mission High School lot on the west side of Delores Street between 17th and 18th Streets. The parking driveway is closer to 17th Street and takes you up a ramp to an elevated parking slab behind a chain link fence, as shown in this Google Street View. From there, it’s a two-block walk. Put something that says “BASK” on your your dashboard. The lot will be locked at 10 pm, so make sure you’re out well before then. Other parking in the Mission is limited. If you need to drive, carpooling and parking west of Mission St. are recommended. There are two parking garages in the area. For trip planning information, see the Women’s Building contact page.
Note: This presentation will NOT be broadcast as a “virtual meeting” or recorded for the BASK YouTube channel.
