Explore the challenges and triumphs of national parks
around the world through Crown Jewels, a new exhibit at the Presidio presented by the Presidio Trust. Crown Jewels
showcases five international parks through the eyes of experts, each with a
lifetime’s work in that part of the world. Through narratives and striking photographs, learn about the challenges facing protected areas
in Tibet, East Africa, Italy, Amazonia, and Australia. The exhibit is
accompanied by a lecture series that invites the public to hear these
remarkable stories from the researchers themselves.
