Our mission is to build community, connect people with nature, and protect and enhance Mt. Sutro, one of the city’s wildest and most beautiful green spaces.
Our vision is a wild and thriving Mount Sutro that offers adventure and respite to the people of San Francisco. We envision the open space as a treasured place where well-maintained trails, expanses of restored locally native plant communities and a healthy and diverse forest support flourishing wildlife habitat and foster deep connections to nature.
Joining the Sutro Stewards Advisory Board will give you the opportunity to engage in having a positive impact in your community, take action for the environment at a local level, and learn more about nature. We are a fun and dedicated group of individuals passionate about ensuring Mt. Sutro is a thriving green space for all to enjoy. You can read more about our current Board members below.
