National Parks Traveler: Mountain Lake At Presidio Growing In Diversity With Recovery Of Stickleback Fish And Other Species

Mountain Lake Park

With a multi-year cleanup completed, efforts are now under way to return native species that once called Mountain Lake home to the lake that’s on the grounds of the Presidio in San Francisco.

With help from the Presidio Trust, along with area volunteers, hundreds of three-spine stickleback fish were released into Mountain Lake earlier this month. The stickleback were the first native species to be returned to the lake after an extensive, multi-year clean up and enhancement. The natural lake, one of only two in San Francisco, is located at the southern edge of the Presidio’s border near the intersection of Lake Street and Highway 1.
