Nature and the Outdoors

Breathe deep and feel the fresh air! The Presidio is a natural oasis right next door to the big city – a place where you can experience wildflowers, watersheds, and wildlife on an afternoon hike. It is also a where important work is being done to revitalize natural areas and to show how people and the environment can thrive in harmony. At the Presidio,​ explore habitats that have been lost in the urban Bay Area; see a fox or a hawk hunt for their next meal; or stroll around a natural lake that has been brought back to life. Events like Science Saturdays,  the Presidio Stargazing Parties, and the Astrolecture Series engage you with the heavens and the earth.​ And volunteer opportunities​​ allow you to make a personal connection with nature.​
