As Rick White previously reported, the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park is closed due to Covid-19; most, if not all, other park indoor venues are closed as well. Given that, Rick will lead an outdoor field trip as follows:
August Field Trip: Exploring Golden Gate Park, Individual exploration of the eastern end of Golden Gate Park (bounded by 19th St [west],Stanyan St [east, Fulton St [north] and Lincoln St [south]) anytime between Saturday, August 8th and Friday, August 14th.
There are many photo ops within this area including some great architectural and horticultural features. To name just a few: the Conservatory of Flowers (a jewel of a Victorian glass greenhouse and the adjacent Dahlia Dell which should be spectacular at this time, the area around the Music Concourse featuring the music bandstand, the de Young Museum, the CA Academy of Sciences, the Rose Garden and Japanese Tea Garden. Throughout this area there are other gardens, ponds, statues and art works. In good weather there are unlimited opportunities for a peaceful picnic.
