College Programs


City College of San Francisco students enjoy the wildflowers and sweeping views at Mori Point at the end of a fun program weeding

Are you interested in supporting the natural world while learning about nature’s relationships, getting to know your fellow classmates, and having fun in your local national park? Join us for a day of stewardship and conversation to help build a resilient home for the park’s many local plants and animals. You can either meet us in the park or take the free shuttle from the CCSF Science Hall (limited spots available). 

Below are the opportunities available for Spring Semester 2023, including a little description of the site.
