Presidio Volunteer

When: Fridays, 9 am–Noon;

Where: Meet at the Temporary Presidio Transit Center a few minutes prior to the start of the program for a prompt 9:00 am departure. Volunteers will be shuttled by van to the project site.​ Look for an orange trailer with "VOLUNTEER" on the side as a meeting location landmark. 

​​​​Forest Stewards tend to young trees in the Presidio’s reforestation areas. Learn about urban forestry and arboriculture, while assisting with forest maintenance through planting, weeding, mulching, and other stewardship activities.​
