San Francisco Children & Nature has launched a list of “100 things to do in nature in SF” as part of an effort to inspire kids and families to explore the natural side of SF. The list ranges from familiar outings like “Walk across the Golden Gate Bridge” to lesser-known gems such as “Visit Edgehill Mountain,” which sits near Mt. Davidson and Forrest Hill.
This list is arranged in four sections: Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, and Southwest. Some highlights from the list include:
- Explore the ruins of a once-extravagant swimming palace at Sutro Baths.
- Walk, stroll or roll along the JFK Promenade in Golden Gate Park
- Roll down a hill at Alamo Square Park
- Hug our state tree—the redwood—at the bottom of the Transamerica Building
- Look for salamanders in Islais Creek
- Look for whales (December – May) and hang gliders from the cliffs at Fort Funston
- Go fishing at Candlestick Pier
- Look for a night heron at McLaren Park
San Francisco Children & Nature is a citywide collaborative that works to address the disparities in nature access along socioeconomic and racial lines to ensure all children have the opportunity to play, learn and grow in the outdoors.
