Presidio of San Francisco (June 23, 2004) -- The national park is alive with the sights and sounds of 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 Pacific Flyway.
Birds of the Pacific Slope, a free seven-week exhibit, will be presented in the Exhibition Hall at the Presidio Officers' Club at 50 Moraga beginning July 9. The hours are from 11 am 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 includes historic and contemporary art, fine printing, the story of 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 daytime presentations in the galleries and bird walks in the Presidio."
