Here’s another great opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the nature of our bioregion: join San Francisco State professor and Bay Nature contributor Michael Vasey for a six-day course called “Conserving Biodiversity in the San Francisco Bay Estuary,” offered through SFSU’s Romberg Tiburon Center (college credit available). The course stresses “paddles-on” learning, with canoe field trips to the Delta, Suisun Marsh, the North Bay, Central Bay, and South Bay. Combined with introductory and follow-up lectures, these extensive outings explore the nature, culture, and political issues of the estuary and its subregions. The class runs from August 21 through 26, 2002. Sign up through the Tiburon Center or contact Jason Morris at Save the Bay (510) 452-9261.
