- Forty-five bird species. Fifty-two plant species. Twenty orders and 39 families of arthropods. All these have been identified at the California Academy of Sciences, but its probably not what you think; these life forms arent preserved in exhibits indoors. Rather, they inhabit the top of the museum on the outside. Once a week you can see them at Explore the Living Roof with Naturalists, a guided tour of this living, green roof, which was created during extensive renovation that was completed in 2005. The hilly roof an homage to San Franciscos own terrain not only matches the parks landscape by seamlessly integrating roughly 1.7 million species native to the Bay Area, but it also dramatically reduces the museums carbon footprint.
