The SFNHS explores all aspects of nature in the Bay Area. We seek to understand our impact on those natural systems, and their impact on us. By understanding the history of the natural world where we live, we seek a deeper connection to that world so that we can make more informed choices for the future.
The San Francisco Natural History Series has been running at the Randall Museum for at least a couple decades.
As of April 2015, we will be a wandering series. The Randall is undergoing reconstruction and won’t reopen until early 2017. We’ve been grateful for the use of the theater over the years, and hope to be back there one day.
Currently, the talks are being organized by Adrian Cotter and Nissa Kreidler. Past organizers have included Joel Pomerantz, Philip Gerrie, Margaret Goodale, Ruth Gravanis, and others. The talks started in June of 1988, started by a group of “naturalists, teachers, writers, environmental activists, and others who want to learn more about the natural history of San Francisco to share that knowledge with others.”
If you have any questions about future speakers, ideas for the series, or a desire to speak yourself, please email adrian cotter at the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Through at the end of 2016 — the times and dates of our talks will vary some. They’ll likely be Tuesday-Thursday in the latter half of the month. Make sure to check individual talks for time and date: See upcoming speakers for more information and dates.
As with the “when” the “where”, the location, will vary from talk to talk. Make sure to check individual talks for address along with date and time.
