Join us for Sunday Streets, as the Luggage Store Annex & ArtsEd4All crew uses “The Butterfly Effect” to transform the Tenderloin National Forest and the surrounds on Ellis Street with the help of pollinators of all shapes and sizes.
Makeway for Monarch’s “Call for Contemplation and Action for Monarchs and Other Imperiled Pollinators” begins at on April 13th (Palm Sunday), and continues until dusk on April 14th – the 50th Anniversary of the passing of Rachel Carson.

Given that the numbers of honey bees, bumblebees and monarch butterflies may now be lower than at any point in our lifetimes, this spring is an appropriate time for Americans to show the concern for, love of and commitment to the pollinators which help bring us our daily bread and offer nature’s services to keep our food system secure. We invite you to celebrate with butterflies, “brightly fluttering bits of life,” by joining us an afternoon of art and science, with compassion and action for nature.
“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find resources of strength that will endure as long as life lasts”
— Rachel Carson
