Help enhance rare native plant habitat and create important wildlife corridors in the Presidio of San Francisco. Learn about dune and serpentine systems while working in our scrub, grassland, woodland, wetland, and bluff habitats. Our activities include invasive plant removal during the summer season and planting during the winter season. Habitat restoration is a proactive way to participate in environmental healing while removing invasive plants and revegetating with natives.
