The movie screening is in the Mission, but the topic of the movie is about some our four legged neighbors in the Richmond.
Award winning documentary, San Francisco—Still Wild At Heart, is a virtual case study of the arrival of coyotes in our urban communities. This film has been described as "uplifting, lyrical, moving" and "an absolute treasure of a film."
Unfolding first in San Francisco, the film follows the story of the coyote across the national canvas—to New York City's Central Park; to Chicago, where more than 2,000 coyotes live today; and to rural California, where sheep ranchers find promise in innovative non-lethal predator control methods to protect their livestock.

A discussion with Brent Plater of the Wild Equity Institute will follow the film.
Light refreshments will be available. I am super excited to use my newly acquired (from freecycle) air popcorn popper. Bonus points if you bring your own reusable bowl.
The Wild Equity Institute office is a short walking distance from the 16th Street BART Station and several Muni bus lines. Please visit 511.org to plan your route.
