Nature in the City


Our mission is to inspire San Francisco to discover local nature.

Skyscrapers, coyotes, and sand dunes. Rapidly urbanizing San Francisco is a biodiversity hotspot. With so many colorful plants and animals sharing our home, we’re dedicated to educating our community about urban wildlife and pioneering projects to encourage exploring and stewarding local habitats. This year, we published a foldable map to show you where to find nature in the city!

We connect youth and adults to urban ecology in San Francisco because we believe in the importance of engaging with local nature.

By organizing habitat restoration projects throughout diverse neighborhoods in San Francisco, we seek to empower local communities with tools to participate in stewardship, citizen science, and lifelong learning.

As a grassroots environmental nonprofit, we’re delighted to provide all age groups with volunteering opportunities, educational resources, and advocacy support in San Francisco.

At Nature in the City, we deeply value our partnerships. We’re enthusiastic about working with individuals and organizations who share our love for nature. If you have a bright idea for a collaboration, please reach out — we can’t wait to hear from you.

Will you take part? Together, let’s explore nature in the city.
