Public-facing Volunteers

Archaeology Field Station at El Presidio Site

El Presidio is the site of the original Spanish fort on the Main Post of the Presidio, and now a live archaeological dig site. Volunteers greet park visitors and discuss archaeology techniques and what we’ve learned through the excavation process. See also our archaeology stewardship volunteer opportunities.

Goldsworthy Tree Fall

Andy Goldsworthy’s Tree Fall is located indoors on the Presidio’s Main Post and is open regularly for volunteer tours. It is part of a unique collection of Goldsworthy installations throughout the Presidio that also include Spire, Wood Line and Earth Wall.

My Park Moment Photo Show

Situated in four locations around the Presidio Tunnel Tops, the free My Park Moment photo show features people from all backgrounds across the country enjoying their favorite parks. From the 7,000 submissions received, 400 hundred images were selected for the show by a distinguished panel of creators and community leaders. They capture the beauty of the great outdoors and the joy that time in nature can bring.

Presidio Officers’ Club and Heritage Gallery

The Presidio Officers’ Club is one of the most historic buildings in San Francisco—two adobe rooms date to the Spanish El Presidio. Throughout the 20th century, the Officers' Club was an exclusive gathering place for Army brass and their families. Today, the public is welcome to enjoy its free exhibition galleries tracing the Presidio’s past and present, with the help of our knowledgeable volunteers.

​Special Events Volunteers

The Presidio Trust hosts special events throughout the year, and we rely on volunteers to help make them happen! Volunteers greet visitors, assist with activities and crowd control, and help with setup and cleanup.

​Presidio Tunnel T​ops

Opening in spring 2022, Presidio Tunnel Tops is a new attraction within the Presidio national park site. It’s built on top of the Presidio Parkway tunnels, with amazing Golden Gate views you can’t find anywhere else in San Francisco. This new destination connects the historic center of the Presidio to the park’s Crissy Field waterfront. The area is free, accessible for all, and easy to get to on public transportation. Volunteers welcome and orient park visitors to fun, and begin their national park adventures.
