YSP trips are ~2.5 hours long and consist of both an environmental education and habitat restoration component. Group leaders have the option to choose from several educational themes for each trip and habitat restoration usually involves removing invasive plants, though the work is site-specific. All necessary gloves and tools are provided!
Date: Dates selected less than three weeks from submission of this application may not be guaranteed. Trips requested within a week will not be accepted.
**Our educators lead trips Wednesday - Friday. Please select a date that falls on one of those days.**
Educational Theme: Each trip focuses on a specific theme--we recommend starting with Sense of Place for your first trip and following with whatever themes are most relevant to your group's curriculum for the year.
**Programming is contingent on current COVID-19 safety protocols--we will be adhering to the Department of Public Health's guidance in leading field trips. Staff and all trip participants must wear facemasks while field trip is in session, with socially distanced mask breaks for water and food as needed.
An in-class visit consists of an overview presentation on San Francisco's natural history and what it means to be a park steward, followed by a hands-on activity.
