Bioregional Education Program:

San Francisco Bay Area

Planet Drum Foundationís Bioregional Education Program includes educational and hands-on components.  Field trips and workshops guide adults, students, and teachers exploring and learning about the SF Bay Area. The program provides a whole systems (bioregional) approach to identifying and understanding Northern California's unique ecological qualities. Emphasis is on:

  • observation and mapping natural characteristics,
  • exploring what makes Northern California distinct,
  • discussion of the interrelationships of natural systems, and may include
  • hands-on restoration work or a walk through the site. 

Participants gain an understanding of what we must do, individually and collectively, to restore and maintain healthy natural systems in San Francisco and the Bay Area. BEP workshops and events can be arranged for schools, non-profit organizations, businesses, volunteer groups, and the general public. To arrange a special event for your group, please contact mail@planetdrum.org or call (408) 285-6556.
