This combo program focuses on the health of the Presidio's historic forests and the maintenance of the trails throughout. The program focus rotates weekly.
Forest Stewards tend to young trees in the Presidio’s reforestation areas. Learn about urban forestry and arboriculture, while assisting with forest maintenance through planting, weeding, mulching, and other stewardship activities.
Trail Stewards help maintain and enhance park trails and pathways. Volunteers help us maintain a world-class trail system for the community to enjoy for now and forever.
