Restore Native Plant and Animal Habitats
Families can become Park Stewards and help restore unique San Francisco coastal habitat. The sites feature California coastal scrub, shifting sand dunes, and coastal prairies–all in the backyard of bustling San Francisco.
Over 100,000 plants have been planted, and plenty of work remains to be done to restore and maintain the native coastal ecosystems of this fabulous city.
Weekly volunteer activities focus on weeding in the summer and planting in the winter, as well as seed collection, landscape beautification, and trail maintenance. Leave the concrete jungle behind, work outside beside the shimmering Pacific Ocean and majestic Golden Gate Bridge.
You have the unique opportunity to work with rare and endangered plants including dune tansy, San Francisco wallflower, and San Francisco gumplant. Watch a brown pelican diving in the surf or train your ears to catch the songbirds nesting in the native scrub. There is always something interesting to see and learn at the work sites!
