Join the California Native Plant Society Yerba Buena tour to explore Glen Canyon Park!

Glen Canyon is one of San Francisco’s significant natural resource areas containing a variety of wildlife habitats and vegetation including native grasslands, riparian areas, forbs, shrubs, willows and other trees. At this time of year, we hope to see the spring phase of local plants and glimpse the wildlife whose habitat is created by these natives plants and plant communities. The park features rock formations and a tributary of Islais Creek. We will walk and view parts of this 70-acre park to enjoy the flora, fauna, and natural history.

We recommend bringing layers of clothing and water.
