This walking tour follows the inspiration of Kim Shuck, the seventh poet laureate of San Francisco, and shares poems conjured from her Presidio wanderings, following the water and exploring themes of regeneration, restoration, community, and history.

Although these poems all relate to the ecosystem as a whole, we split the walk into three zones, so you can join in at any point, closest to where you are now.

San Francisco Poet Laureate Kim Shuck is curating a Poem of the Day with San Francisco Public Library for every day during the COVID-19 pandemic. Check daily for new poetic offerings from assorted local poets.
