The Golden Gate National Recreation Area sustains more federally threatened and endangered species than Yosemite, Yellowstone, Kings Canyon, and Sequoia National Parks combined. The San Francisco Bay Area is considered the 6th most important biological diversity hotspot in the United States by the Nature Conservancy. UNESCO has even granted the GGNRA “Biosphere Reserve” status, the same status granted to the Central Amazon rainforests. Come and learn about the amazing biodiversity in your own backyard! Brent Plater (GGNRA Big Year) and Peter Brastow (Nature in the City) will be the evening's speakers.
