This comprehensive, region-wide guide will become the one essential book for anyone wishing to explore the remarkably diverse San Francisco Bay shoreline. Walkers, hikers, boaters, cyclists, persons with disabilities--all will welcome the Guide's compact, user-friendly format, full-color maps, and many illustrations. Covering the entire 400-mile Bay Trail, which extends south to San Jose, east to Martinez, and north to Petaluma, the Guide describes over 170 different sites, as well as trails that branch off the Bay Trail and lead inland. Parks, wildlife areas, paths, and piers are all here, along with selected details about natural, cultural, and historic features that reveal the San Francisco Bay Area's rich multicultural heritage. The Guide also highlights the various ecosystems that coexist along this unique urban shoreline. Common plant and animal species are illustrated and described for easy identification. Icons indicate sites suitable for various activities: boating, fishing, biking, hiking, birdwatching, picnicking, and wheelchair riding. A reference section contains public transit information, names of Bay-related organizations, and many useful phone numbers. This section also lists resources of special value to environmental educators at all levels. The California State Coastal Conservancy is a state agency working to enhance, preserve, and restore the California coast, and to provide public access.
Opened in 1960 as the home of the San Francisco Giants, Candlestick Park is among America’s most iconic sports facilities. It is a striking example of modernism and was the first reinforced-concrete stadium. The Giants’ home for 40 years, it played host to two World Series, including in 1989, when it was infamously delayed by the Loma Prieta Earthquake. Renovated to a dual-purpose stadium in 1970, it became home to the San Francisco 49ers. In 1982, “The Catch,” one of the most famous plays in NFL history, heralded the beginning of five Super Bowl Championships. Candlestick Park was also home to the early Oakland Raiders, was visited by Pope John Paul II, and saw the last Beatles concert.
