Event description

Description

Lobos Creek Valley offers a glimpse of San Francisco as it was before a city covered its “Outside Lands.” Just 200 years ago, this valley was part of a vast natural area of rolling sand dunes that covered a third of San Francisco. Lobos Creek provided water for early inhabitants of the city, and this valley was the first major habitat restoration project undertaken after the Presidio became a national park in 1994.

The creek still runs year-round and provides most of the water used by the Presidio residents and visitors. Join Damien Raffa, Presidio Trust Environmental and Outdoor Education Specialist, for a walk through this unique area, a broad expanse of dunes covered with native plants, including the endangered San Francisco Lessingia, and home to many kinds of wildlife. Our journey along the creek will end with a tour of the Presidio’s historic Water Treatment Plant where Lobos Creek is rendered potable. Free tastings!

Ages 8 +. Walking terrain includes slopes, sand, boardwalk and stairs. Ages 8+. Rain or shine! No pets, please.
