Former public health official Jean Fraser is the new head of the Presidio Trust, the non-profit created in 1996 to oversee the 1,500 acre national park at the northern end of San Francisco. A former U.S. Army post, the Presidio is unique: it offers 24 miles of hiking trails, houses families and high-profile businesses, and is mandated to be financially self-sufficient. We’ll talk with Fraser about some of the non-profit's controversial projects, funding the park and meeting its wideranging goals, including serving more diverse communities in the Bay Area.
