The California Academy of Sciences won't be open to the public until next autumn. The view at Golden Gate Park is still rather vague— the building isn't changing very rapidly on the outside. What tends to be forgotten though, is that scientists and other assorted hauling lackeys have been gradually carting plants, animals, and other specemins from the Academy's soon-to-be former location. Decidedly impressive. Check out Golden Gate XPress for further deets.
