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.
Please select a date that falls on Monday or Wednesday-Saturday.**
Location: Please note that we do not offer transportation, but do our best to find placements within a reasonable distance to your school/program site, unless a different park choice is specified.
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.
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.
Please indicate any special needs of your group and if accommodations are needed. If you know of any allergies in your group, please list them here.
