The San Francisco Naturalist Society: Tigers on Market Street: Butterfly Habitat Along a Busy Corridor

Thursday, Mar 14, 2013 7:30p to 9:00p
Randall Museum San Francisco, CA

Not long after the transit tunnels of Muni and Bart went in below Market Street in the 1970s, a San Franciscan butterfly—the western tiger swallowtail discovered an ecosystem freshly lined with one of its larval food trees: the London plane sycamore. Males fly among the treetops, females lay eggs on the leaves, caterpillars feed and pupate, and adult butterflies emerge. This creature's entire lifecycle has played out for years unheralded by the thousands who walk below this canopy daily.
