birds. In fact, at least 224 different types of birds--from orioles to
parrots-- have been spotted in the Presidio, an important stop along the
Birds of the Pacific Slope, a free seven-week

to 5 pm from Wednesday through Sunday.
The multi-sensory exhibition celebrates bird life
on the Pacific Slope and in the Presidio through sights and songs. It

contemporary habitat restoration and bird conservation, bird songs, Bay
Area birding organizations, and kids’ activities.
It will be complemented by a variety of evening
events including talks, demonstrations and musical programs, as well as
