Come to this tribute to Ray Bandar at the San Francisco Public Library.
He’s been called Dr. Bones and Reptile Ray. Usually dressed in tattered “field-trip” clothes, Ray Bandar was a fixture at the California Academy of Sciences and the beaches around the San Francisco Bay Area for more than 60 years.
Ray passed away peacefully in his home on December 23 of congestive heart failure. This showing is a tribute to his life’s work.
