Liam O’Brien was working in ACT’s production of Angels in America in the late 1990s when a tiger swallowtail flew into his yard. He surveyed every inch of San Francisco County to see what in fact remained of breeding butterfly species. Painting and illustration have replaced his passion for acting, and his interpretive nature signs can be seen throughout the city on many SF Recreation & Park trails. The book, The Butterflies of the Presidio, written by Matthew Zlatunich and illustrated by Liam O’Brien, was published by the Presidio Trust in the fall of 2012, and now is producing the information signs for the newly restored Mountain Lake. He is the recipient of Bay Nature’s 2014 Environmental Education award.
