This volunteer program is for anyone interested in volunteering that is under the age of 60 and has no underlying health conditions. Note: We’ve designated our Wednesday morning volunteer program for those in the higher risk categories listed above to minimize risk of COVID-19 exposure. Come join us for a morning in habitat restoration activities such as weeding, mulching and native planting and work towards our mission of building community, connecting people with nature, and protecting and enhancing Mount Sutro, one of the city’s wildest and most beautiful green spaces. In response to COVID-19, we are asking all volunteers to provide their own mask. We are also asking volunteers to provide their own landscaping gloves if possible. Please bring your own water and snacks and make sure to wear clothes you can get dirty in. We will meet in the parking lot of 476 Johnstone Drive. Parking is available in the red parking stalls or along Clarendon Avenue. Once you RSVP, we will be reaching out to you with a more in depth info packet and two participation waivers. Please email Kelly Dodge, firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns!

To create Urban Recreational Opportunities while practicing Sustainable Habitat Conservation Through Stewardship.
The Sutro Stewards was formed to address a unique need in San Francisco, fostering positive relationships between habitat conservation needs and the recreational needs of a dense urban population.
Over the last seven years our founding members and thousands of volunteers have reactivated a virtually abandoned 61 acre open space, located in the center of San Francisco, into a destination for exploration, recreation and stunning forest views. Having accomplished this, we are now working to extend our impact through habitat restoration and environmental education. Our nursery has been actively gathering locally rare plants to place in our seed-bank gardens, which in turn will provide the seed and cuttings to produce plants in large enough quantities for field planting projects. This projects help to minimize the continuing loss of habitat by reintroducing these species to new suitable sites they may colonize.
