Join National Park Volunteer Steve Johnson on a walk around the main post of the San Francisco Presidio as he describes how the area has
changed over time, from the nearby Ohlone village, to the Spanish and Mexican presidio, to the long presence of the U.S. Army, and
finally to the transition to a national park. Along the way he will point out the architecture of different periods, notable people who have
lived at the presidio, and the many ways the park today is serving the community. Meet at the Visitor Center at 10 am. Free.
There are food trucks on the weekends, and people can have a picnic on the grounds after the walk.
