Visit Mount Sutro for a volunteer event and help steward this exceptional place! Volunteers work on trail building & maintenance, take part in habitat improvement projects like weeding and planting, and care for native plants at our on-site nursery. Volunteer every Wednesday, Thursday and 1st & 3rd Saturdays.

We are now selling and offering curb side pick up of native plants through our online store!

The Sutro Native Plant Nursery propagates locally sourced California native plant species for conservation. These locally sources native plants get planted at restoration sites to provide wildlife habitat and forage. Plants are also available for sale to the public for backyard habitat gardens!

See an updated trail map here to see trail usage changes due to COVID-19.

Did you know there is a multi-use trail system on Mount Sutro in the center of San Francisco? Explore award winning trails and beautiful open space. Give volunteers a high-five if you see them working; the trails are the result of many hours of volunteer effort. A new segment of Bay Area Ridge Trail was dedicated in 2017.

Sutro Stewards is currently in the process of developing safety protocols for the re-opening of our volunteer program. We do not have an official start day of our in person volunteer events. Please check back frequently for the most up to date information. You can email to be put on a notification list for when we do open back up.

We wish you all safety and health. Thank you for your continued support of Sutro Stewards through this time!
