For Members: The Secret Life of Lobos Creek Valley
Lobos Creek, San Francisco

Just 200 years ago, Lobos Creek 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 natural 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, tenants, and employees.

Join Presidio Trust Education & Volunteer Manager Damien Raffa for an easy walk around this restored ecosystem, a broad expanse of dunes covered with native plants, including the threatened San Francisco Lessingia, and home to many animals. A visit here offers a glimpse of San Francisco as it was before a city grew here – an outdoor natural museum!
