Presidio Tunnel Tops Stewards

Help care for Presidio Tunnel Tops through planting, weeding, and more.

Monthly stewardship programs offer fun opportunities to get outside, get your hands dirty, and make a difference for the Presidio’s open spaces.

Plants and animals are thriving at the Presidio – including several on the endangered or protected species list – thanks to decades of restoration work by park staff and volunteers. Learn about our work to support Nature & Sustainability and then become a volunteer!
