San Francisco’s Favorite Outdoor Volunteer Program
Last Thursday marked another installment in UCSF's outreach with regard to the Mt. Sutro Open Space Plan. The meeting, which took place in the Millberry Conference Center's Golden Gate Room, was well very well attended. It's very encouraging to see a community of people coming on a Thursday evening to make their voices heard, and I want to thank all the Stewards who came out that evening.
The meeting began with Daniel Icofano (MIG Consulting) and Barbara French (Vice Chancellor,…Continue
Saturday, November 2nd was no ordinary day on Mt. Sutro. Yes, it was the first time some of our newly trained crew leaders were able to lead groups. And yes, every first Saturday of the month is a special day where volunteers contribute their time and energy to make Mt. Sutro Open Space one of the finest recreation areas in…Continue

I wanted to introduce myself to the group. I just finished yet another wonderfully refreshing hike through Mt. Sutro, although this time, I decided to get more actively involved in the important work of the Sutro Stewards, starting by creating a personal profile on this website. :) I'd love to help preserve, protect and maintain this wonderful piece of nature in the middle of San Francisco and look forward to getting more involved. From what I've learned, Mt.…Continue
Had a blast with my six year old son. Rode downhill on Historic Tr. Had to stop for some workers keeping the trail in its awesome condition. Amazing area and looking forward to riding more and also volunteering.
Dawn broke on Saturday November 5th with the most beautiful blood red sky behind a still dark Mount Sutro. I regarded this as a good omen for a very challanging day of stewardship that had been in the making for several months. The Sutro Stewards hosted the Bay Area Ridge Trail (BART)/REI service day for the first time. We set the bar (rock bar if you will) very high and capped registration for the event at 100, making this our largest event ever. We reached that goal with a few days to…Continue

We performed habitat and trail work on the Fairy Gates and Edgewood trail intersection area. Cape and English ivy, nightshade and other assorted weeds were removed and the trail corridor was pruned. We also…Continue
Don't be alarmed if you pass through Rotary Meadow and find a patch of bare soil in one small area. The meadow is being replanted this winter with several new species of grasses and plants which are not already found within the garden area. This is part of the intent of the original demonstration area, to determine what succeeds and what doesn't. The area where the work is taking place was one of the lowest performing of the areas planted in 2004. Now six years after the original planting,…Continue
