It's springtime and the wildflowers at Lands End and Fort Funston have put on their best outfits to welcome us! Come join us to see an array of native flowers as they parade through our national park sites and enthuse us by their colors, scent, and beauty.

The Park Stewardship team will lead a leisurely walk along the trails and share the folklore, medicinal uses, and biology of the flowers. Spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and a new appreciation for spring wildflowers in San Francisco are guaranteed! Feel free to join us for our volunteer program as well.

Registration is required due to limited capacity. Rain cancels wildflower walk. Please check the Park Stewardship Calendar for updates and cancellations.
