Outdoors in San Francisco

cymbidiumNow that spring is here, it’s a great time to go outdoors. This year, San Francisco has encountered a huge expansion of its overwintering grounds. For example at the Crissy Field Wildlife Protection Area and Ocean Beach, there are usually around 20 to 30 birds there but in January, that figure was 104 in one day. One bird watcher expert claimed this was very exciting and most unusual.

This is really good news for bird watchers. According to Cindy Margulis, Executive Director of the Golden Gate Audubon Society, “it’s amazing to be able to see a whole flock of a threatened species, nearly 6 percent of the entire population of this species, in one area on the edge of a major city. But it’s a reminder of how precarious their existence is.”

For those who prefer flower-gazing to bird watching, there is also the Pacific Orchid Expo happening, at Fort Mason. There, a focus on cymbidiums – terrestrial orchids from Asia and northern Australia – can be found

With about 150,000 exotic and colorful orchids available at next weekend’s Pacific Orchid Expo at Fort Mason in San Francisco, it’s easy to forget about the beauty and diversity of one of the simplest species to grow — cymbidiums. And this type of orchid is unique in that it is happier outdoors. So San Franciscans get outside and enjoy the birds and flowers!
