Thousands of San Francisco Residents to Enjoy the 3rd Annual Neighborhood Free Days

SAN FRANCISCO (June 27, 2001) -San Francisco residents will once again enjoy free admission days to the California Academy of Sciences, running throughout October and November. Invited by neighborhood, according to zip codes, over 7,000 San Francisco residents visited the Academy on Neighborhood Free Days during its first two years.

Each visiting adult must prove residency by showing a driver's license or a utility bill. Only residents from the zip codes invited on the designated dates will be admitted free of charge. Like last year, the expanded program includes Sundays so visitors can now visit on one of three days: Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

Information about Neighborhood Free Days will be posted throughout San Francisco in Community Centers, Public Library Branches, Recreation and Park Sites, Preschools and Daycare Centers, Schools, and Neighborhood Businesses.
