Mission Statement

Starr King Open Space (SKOS) is committed to providing community stewardship of its land so that it remains a place of discovery and beauty.


Our Values
* SKOS is a sanctuary for people and a habitat for wildlife, removed from the dense and busy urban environment that surrounds it.
* SKOS inspires exploration, discovery, stewardship, and connection with the natural world.
* SKOS is a place where neighbors are invited to share, building a sense of community in the greater neighborhood.
* SKOS is a laboratory for learning and sharing about the local ecosystem and about the cultural and natural history of Potrero Hill.
* SKOS remains free of permanent, irreversible transformations that would diminish the experience of it being an open space to be shared by people and wildlife.
* SKOS remains open and accessible to Potrero Hill residents and to all others who wish to visit.
* The residents of Potrero Hill have a strong sense of ownership and pride for the open space and support it through volunteer activities and financial contributions.
* The SKOS of Directors is responsive to the Potrero Hill community and seeks to make a difference in the quality of life for the human and animal communities of Potrero Hill.
