Have you seen the new El Polín Spring? Want to know why this small valley tucked away in the Presidio is so special to so many?
Join Presidio Trust archaeologist Kari Jones for a walking tour to discover the legend of El Polín. Hear about what remains from San Francisco’s first suburb. Learn about where early Spanish colonial settlers built their homes, threw away their garbage, and collected water. Visitors will have the opportunity to view an archaeological feature and artifacts from excavations in the area.
The tour is at 11 am. Space for each tour is limited so please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Meeting location and details will be provided with your RSVP confirmation.
Join us at this event and many more as part of a month long celebration of this recently restored natural treasure, featuring more than a dozen events, including guided walks and talks, bird watching, fun for kids, archaeology tours, and a volunteer day. See the full schedule of events.
