Trips are limited to the parks and open spaces within the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department. That means that educators have over 220 parks to choose from. However, we ask that you consider several factors when selecting a park such as:
- your group size
- size of the park
- your group’s age and whether or not access to a bathroom is essential
- what you want your youth to gain from the experience
- and lastly, your proximity and ease of transportation to and from the park
In partnership with the Port of San Francisco, the Youth Stewardship Program also facilitates field trips at the EcoCenter at Heron’s Head Park (HHP). Trips at HHP touch on environmental justice principles, wetland ecology and watersheds.
