Are you interested in making this a greener world while learning, exploring, and having fun in your local national park? Our Park Stewardship Program has partnered with several instructors at CCSF to offer extra credit opportunities for students in the biology department. It's a chance for you to put what you're learning in the classroom into action, teaming up with us on habitat restoration volunteer days. 

Below are the opportunities available for Spring Semester 2022, including a little description of the site.
