Getting in Nature

Joining a program as a community group:

Our Health in Nature programs are full until June of 2023. We are currently seeking to host groups for the fall of 2023! We welcome any questions, interest, and enthusiasm. If we can make space for your group we will. If you want to join us please contact


Joining a program as a health care practitioner or healing arts professional:

We would love to collaborate with a physician or student physician in a Parks RX program. If you work, teach, or are a student of UCSF, SF General, or are a physician from any other hospital in San Francisco, we would love to hear from you.


Joining a program as a healing arts, mindfulness or expressive arts professional:

Come collaborate with us by supporting our existing programs as a paid program facilitator. We are actively seeking medicinal plant practitioners, dancers, traditional healers, artists, meditation teachers, somatic wellness practitioners, and other service providers to join us on the mountain for an initial consultation walk before joining an existing program. Those that can provide culturally relevant services are of particular interest to the groups we serve. 

Please contact for more information.
