Drawbridge Van Excursion - Alviso

July 25Drawbridge

10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

There’s a ghost town in the San Francisco Bay? That’s right! Nestled on an island in the salt marshes of South San Francisco Bay, the town of Drawbridge once boomed. Was it a quiet, peaceful town full of nature lovers, or a rip-roaring town full of two-fisted rowdies? Find out at this program led by Ceal Craig. We’ll start with a slideshow and then take a short van excursion to view Drawbridge across Coyote Creek. Program will be of most interest to adults interested in history or nature; children 13 and over with an adult are welcome.  Space is very limited.  RESERVATIONS ARE ESSENTIAL. Go to  Questions?  Call Julie at 408-262-5513 ext. 104. We do not visit the town itself – we go to the closest spot that one can legally view Drawbridge.
