About Sutro Stewards

Location:

Mount Sutro Open Space Reserve, San Francisco, CA 94131, US

Mission Statement

To create Urban Recreational Opportunities while practicing Sustainable Habitat Conservation Through Stewardship.

Description

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.
