COVID Information for this event

This Bay Area Science Festival event is an outdoor event that is following the county guidelines of San Francisco County. Additional COVID requirements for this event include that masks are not required, but recommended.

Event Hosts

The Presidio Trust is an innovative federal agency that stewards and shares the history, beauty, and wonder of the Presidio for everyone to enjoy forever. We earn the funds to manage the Presidio by operating park businesses, from leasing homes and workplaces to offering visitor amenities. Unlike other national parks, the Trust does not receive a direct annual appropriation. The Trust manages the Presidio in partnership with the National Park Service and with support from the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy.
