If Earth Day has left a lasting impression of the environment on your mind, it’s time to get out there and enjoy the beauty and natural wonder of one of the best public parks in the United States. This Saturday (April 25th, 2009), from 10am to 12pm – the California Academy of Sciences (55 Music Concourse Drive) will provide a guided exploration of the park with the help of a professional naturalist.

While this is the perfect opportunity to get acquainted (or reacquainted) with the Oak Woodland in Golden Gate Park, you’ll also learn the importance of park biodiversity, as well as touch upon controversial topics regarding native species. Come prepared for an excursion in the great outdoors, as you meet at the Naturalist Center on Saturday. Hands-on activities will keep you busy, while you become familiar with some of the plants found right in your own regional wonderland.

Keep in mind that this event is free with admission to the Academy. Since only 30 people are admitted per session, it’s important to claim your space by RSVP’ing at 800-794-7576 to make arrangements.
