Give back and then kick back at the 5th Annual FOGG Fest, a volunteer program hosted by REI and the National Park Service and the Presidio Trust. By participating in this service project and helping beautify this already gorgeous place, you’ll be rewarded with a discounted ticket to the Trail Mixer — not a bad deal for free beers on tap from sponsor Drake’s Brewing Company. There will also be a live band, wine from local wineries, a food truck, and some amazing views to enjoy.
FOGG (Friends of the Golden Gate) is a group of young professionals who support the parks through their membership with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy by raising awareness, support, and engagement with 21–40-year-olds in the Bay Area to create the next generation of park stewards and supporters.
If You Go:
When: Saturday, June 13th from 10am to 4pm
Where: Golden Gate Overlook, The Presidio Lincoln Blvd at Langdon Court San Francisco, CA 94129
Cost: $10 for give back and kickback, $35 for kickback only
