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 and 1st & 3rd Saturdays.

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!

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.

Due to the updated (3/31) shelter in place order in San Francisco and California, in person volunteer events are cancelled until May 3rd. Events after that date may be cancelled to reflect any new orders issued by San Francisco or California.

We look forward to the day that we can all be back on Mount Sutro together. We wish you all safety and health during this time.

Thank you for your continued support of Sutro Stewards!
