      Volunteers Working in Black Point Historic Gardens Maria Durana/Parks Conservancy

      When: Every Tuesday and 3rd Saturday of each month, 9 am-noon

      Where: Meet in the grassy area across the street from the Sea Scout Dock, 3500 Van Ness Ave, San Francisco, 94109.

      Join us at East Black Point, a quiet and all but forgotten spot, neglected for decades, and tucked away above the hustling bustling San Francisco waterfront. Located within Fort Mason, the site was developed with gardens and pathways in the 1850s by early San Francisco residents. Sheltered from the wind and offering striking views of the bay and city, it's easy to see why the hillside was a favored place for the community to garden and stroll. East Black Point is currently off limits, but with volunteer support the beautiful garden pathways will be unearthed, the site will be brought back to life, and we will reopen it for public use and ongoing stewardship.

      Volunteers will help to remove invasive species that have overwhelmed the site and revegetate the garden with a mix of native species and horticultural species that were planted by the residents over 100 years ago! Activities primarily include weeding, pruning, and planting.Groups

      Groups of five or more may require special arrangements and must be confirmed in advance. Visit our Groups volunteer page to learn more.Age, Skills, What to Bring:
