About This Site
More information about how this site is designed and how it can be used.
The goals of this site are to allow volunteers to
- share images, stories, and comments about their work
- schedule events, send reminders, and track RSPVs
- discuss general issues about habitat restoration activities in San Francisco
The site is organized around specific Sites. These predominantly are designated Significant Natural Resource Areas managed by RPD’s Natural Areas Program, though other sites such as the PUC’s Laguna Honda properties may eventually be added if a regular volunteer group arises.
Within each Site are the following standard “Web 2.0” tools:
- tags (for photos)
- comments (for nearly everything)
So, when you’re at one Site, only that Site’s photos, events, and blog postings are visible there. However, you can browse horizontally across sites by following tag and user links to see what other photos have that tag or have been uploaded by that user.
If you’re a signed-up and logged-in user, then you can set whether or not you receive email notifications about a Site by going to that Site’s area. You can also update the email address the SF Natural Areas web site uses to communicate with you, as well as your password and display name.
Anonymous visitors can read and view stuff but cannot post comments. Users who signup and login can post comments. Volunteers who want to post photos and blog entries can obtain these permissions by emailing us. Site project leaders who organize the events get further superpowers to create new event calendar entries, send out reminders, and review RSVPs.
We do not expose anyone’s email address in any fashion such that it can be harvested by a bot. We require a valid email address for signup so that subsequent requests for email notifications don’t go off into the ozone. We will not use or abuse your email address in any other fashion whatsoever!
