Learn about past and ongoing preservation and restoration efforts at Oakland with a behind-the-stones walking tour!

Join the Behind the Stones tour for an exclusive look at past and ongoing preservation and restoration efforts.

Spaces are limited, so we recommend purchasing your tickets in advance.
