Gowen, Gowen, Gone? Climate Change, Adaptation, & the Presidio’s Gowen Cypress

Saturday, August 28, 2010, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. — Join Brent Plater of the Wild Equity Institute and Dr. Daniel Gluesenkamp of the Bay Area Early Detection Network on a short walk and discovery of the Presidio’s misplaced Gowen Cypress. The Gowen Cypress is a federally listed species, but it isn’t native to the Presidio, and its presence in the Golden Gate National Parks raises questions we all need to grapple with. When is it appropriate to move imperiled wildlife and plants, and when we do it, how do we do it properly? In an era of climate change, these questions will become more important—and more difficult—to answer. Join us to search for this tree in the Presidio and begin answering these questions, all while earning points towards the 2010 GGNP Endangered Species Big Year grand prize.
