San Francisco – Everyday Insider! (TM) Trip 14D

This time, I am including commercial information about some of the tenants in the Presidio’s historic buildings in San Francisco.

When the historic Army base was turned over to the National Park Service rather than being sold to developers, the Presidio Trust was given the job to make the Presidio self-sustaining by 2013. So, carefully chosen businesses operate here to help provide funds for the hundreds of historic buildings’ upkeep (and maybe provide some extra revenue to help the preservation and reclamation efforts on the 1,500 acre preserve).

In going through part of the tenant roster posted online, these are links and tenants which I thought you might find helpful during a visit. I am sure that you can find many more which interest you!

    The Cultural Conservancy is an organization dedicated to preserving and revitalizing indigenous cultures and their ancestral lands. It includes all indigenous peoples around the Earth.

    The group chooses to “think globally and act locally” by first focusing its work with California Indian communities. Presently, they work with a growing network: Native Americans and First Nations in North America, indigenous peoples of the Americas, Pacific Islanders, and Tibetans living in exile in the U.S.

    Their current programs focus on cultural preservation, language revitalization, environmental protection and education, environmental and traditional arts, as well as native health and wellness.
