      What’s a Geo PDF map? How do you use it? A Geo PDF map is a map you download and store on your smart phone. Use the free app called PDFMaps to view and navigate from the stored map in your phone. Use it on hikes or bike rides to log your distance, start time, duration, and more. You don’t need wi-fi or a data connection once the app is installed. It uses your phone’s GPS feature so it works even if you are out of range of mobile phone service. Meet at the Visitor Center to see a slideshow and find out how to obtain a copy of a Geo PDF map of the Don Edwards SF Bay National Wildlife Refuge. A live demonstration will follow. Led by docent Gregg Aronson. Register at https://geopdf.eventbrite.com and for instructions on how how download the maps to your mobile device.  Please download the FREE Avenza app from your app store prior to coming to the program.

      If you are interested in improving the refuge for visitors and for wildlife alike, join us at the Visitor Center for a community service project. We will do either a trash cleanup or a planting/weeding project. Dress appropriately for the task and for the weather. We will have gloves to lend and will provide the tools. Bring your own water bottle. Meet in the parking lot at the Visitor Center. Driving an additional 2.5 miles may be required since the project may be at a different location. For more information, or to make reservations, call 510-792-0222 ext. 361.
