How Clean Is Our Air?
Wednesday, January 11
7:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers

The San Francisco Bay Area is famous for breath-taking geography, temperate weather and an astounding range of microclimates. What isn’t so well known is the quality of our air. The American Lung Association’s #1 tip for lung health is "don’t smoke." Tip #2 is "avoid exposure to pollutants," including indoor and outdoor air pollution. How do we avoid what we can't see? Sausalito resident and activist Monica Miller will host an info session on the global CleanSpace movement and the local “Map SF Bay Area” initiative to set up a network of portable, citizen-held sensors to create a detailed map of air pollution.

Special Event
The Bird Photographs of Richard Pavek
Friday, January 27
7:00 p.m. inside the Library

Using the big screen in the Library, Sausalito resident Richard Pavek will present a selection of his beautiful photographs of birds from around the world, some in flight others perched. He will also share photos of some of the more striking landscapes that intruded on his bird journeys. Richard picked up his first camera when he was seventeen and used it to capture an aircraft that glowed in the corner of a darkened hanger. Fascinated by the light he saw in that wing he soon found himself immersed in a new hobby. As he moved through the many phases of his life, his cameras were always nearby, waiting for something worthwhile for him to capture, sometimes aircraft, sometimes faces, sometimes scenic landscapes. Some years ago Richard shifted the focus of his cameras from landscapes to birds, especially birds in flight.
