Sutro Stewards works to conserve and expand the wildlife habitat on Mount Sutro, while also providing recreational opportunities that allow the community to enjoy the incredible biodiversity, vistas and peace that Mount Sutro Open Space Reserve has to offer.

For more than a century, Mount Sutro, located in the geographic center of San Francisco, was overlooked by surrounding communities. In the last decade, the true value of the open space was revealed through Sutro Stewards’ creation of multi-use trails that allow the public to explore this exceptional area.

Since 2006, Sutro Stewards has mobilized volunteers to build and maintain trails, remove invasive species, and grow and install native plants. Through their educational initiatives, they share the ecological wonders of the mountain with youth and adults alike.

Today, the group works with both city agencies and land managers to continue to expand the network of connectivity between SF open spaces, and to engage the community in the planning of improvements and long term stewardship projects.
