Just 200 years ago, Lobos Creek Valley was part of a vast natural area of rolling sand dunes that covered a third of San Francisco.
Lobos Creek provided water for early inhabitants of the city, and this valley was the first major natural restoration project undertaken after the Presidio became a national park in 1994. The creek still runs year-round, and provides most of the water used by Presidio residents, tenants, and employees.
Join Presidio Trust Education & Volunteer Manager Damien Raffa for an easy walk around this restored ecosystem—a broad expanse of dunes covered with native plants, including the threatened San Francisco lessingia, and home to many animals.
Lobos Creek Valley is like an outdoor natural museum, offering a glimpse of San Francisco as it was before a city grew here!
