Fun and Successful Nature Walk With WALK SF & A.L.L.

On August 27, a large group of trekkers from WALK SF gathered at Junipero Serra Child Development Center, looked at maps and site plans, and learned about the Islais Creek Watershed and the Bernal Heights Living Library & Think Park Nature Walk leading to the Islais Creek, from Bonnie Ora Sherk. 

600 diverse native trees have already been planted, funded by Cal Fire, and more trees and understory are being planned.  The Nature Walk has been underway since 2002, and hundreds of volunteers have participated in its planning and planting, with great help from city agencies:  RPD, DPW, HA, PUC, all led by Life Frames, Inc. and Bonnie Ora Sherk.

After much discussion, the walkers moved up Appleton, while viewing the native trees planted there, and looked across the street at Holly Courts Public Housing, where other  native trees have also been planted.  Everyone hiked through Holly Park seeing all the diverse species of natives trees planted, then wound their way along planted pathways with oaks,  ceanothus, and other species, down through St. Mary's Park, to the riparian area near the hidden Creek at the south end, into the Redwood Circle for a moment of silence and visualization, then back to St. Mary's Recreation Center to discuss its potential to become a community-wide Center for Urban Forestry and Watershed Education.  Many plans are in discussion and underway; it is a very auspicious opportunity for all !
