Mountain Lake Science Saturdays
Mountain Lake Science Saturdays is a lively new series of talks by scientists studying topics relating to Mountain Lake and its ecological restoration. On the second Saturday of every month, gather at the lake to hear researchers from a variety of disciplines talk on topics ranging from Archaeology to Zooplankton. Here’s your chance to ask the experts your questions about the science behind saving this precious San Francisco natural wonder!
Native Fish: Reintroducing Aquatic Animals to Mountain Lake

Join Darren Fong and Jon Young to learn more about the past, present, and future of aquatic animal life at Mountain Lake. Darren and Jon will demonstrate sampling techniques used to inventory aquatic animals, describe the ecological effects of non-native fish and turtles, and discuss reintroduction plans for native species like the Western Pond Turtle and the Three-spined Stickleback.

Darren Fong is the Aquatic Ecologist for the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and a collaborator with the Presidio Trust on the restoration of the aquatic community at Mountain Lake. Jon Young is a San Francisco State University graduate student and Ecological Restoration Intern at Mountain Lake.
Talks are held at the outdoor classroom (north end of the lake), approximately a 15 minute walk from the parking lot at 14th Avenue and Wedemeyer Street (Free Parking). Follow the signs from there or join a guide leaving at 1:45 pm. Get Directions >>
Second Saturdays aren’t just Science Saturdays! Join your neighbors at Mountain Lake every Second Saturday from 9 am to noon for Service Saturdays. Volunteer and help restore Mountain Lake’s precious natural resources. For more information, email Jason Lisenby at
