About Yerba Buena Gardens

YERBA BUENA GARDENS CONSERVANCY

The Yerba Buena Gardens Conservancy is a civic nonprofit organization established in July 2019 to operate and manage Yerba Buena Gardens on behalf of the City and County of San Francisco.

Mission

The mission of the Yerba Buena Gardens Conservancy is to program, operate, maintain, and improve the publicly owned open spaces, cultural facilities, and related components of San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Gardens. The Conservancy works in conjunction with the Garden’s nonprofit cultural organizations, commercial tenants and the City and County of San Francisco, for the civic and public benefit and enjoyment by the City’s visitors and residents.

Structure + Governance

The Yerba Buena Gardens Conservancy is governed by a Board of Directors representing a crosssection of community members, civic leaders, and City appointees. The City provides oversight as the landlord, auditor, and technical advisor. A small administrative staff led by Executive Director Scott Rowitz contracts for maintenance, operations, programming, and security services.
