Bay Model "Trekking the Model" Guided Tour August 9
Date: August 9, 2009
Time: 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM
Place: Bay Model Visitors Center, 2100 Bridgeway, Sausalito CA 94965. Although the address for the B0y Model Visitors Center is on Bridgeway, the building itself is actually located off of Marinship Way, which splits off of Bridgeway just to the south and runs down a small hill to the nuilding. The satellite photo below shows the huge complex, and the map shows how Bridgeway and Marinship Way intersect. Once you've turned onto Marinship Way signs will lead you to parking for the Bay Model Visitor Center. The entrance faces the Bay.
Price: Free, although donations are appreciated
Partocipants in Trekking the Model will get to go on a guided tour of the Bay Model, a 1.5-acre (in metric units that's HUGE) hydraulic model of San Francisco Bay and the Delta. On the Discovery Channel we watch 3D models of nature to learn how the world works, but at the Bay Model they use pipes, pumps and real water to make the tides ebb and flood. Most local kids are brought here for field trips at some point in their lives, but for the rest of us this event is a new kind of learning experience.
