Event Details

“Crown Jewels” Int’l Park Photography Exhibit | Presidio

Explore the challenges and triumphs of national parks around the world through Crown Jewels, a new exhibit at the Presidio presented by the Presidio Trust.

Crown Jewels showcases five international parks through the eyes of experts, each with a lifetime’s work in that part of the world. Through narratives and striking photographs, learn about the challenges facing protected areas in Tibet, East Africa, Italy, Amazonia, and Australia.

Drop in for free, docent-led tours of the exhibit, then venture out and explore all that the Presidio has to offer. Don’t forget that you can take the free PresidioGo Shuttle to get to the exhibit.
