Google Maps Brown Bag

Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and the Institute at the Golden Gate hosted a “brown bag” lunch presentation on March 23, 2011, on Google Earth and Maps technologies, how other non-profits have used these tools to tell their stories, and how to use the basic tools to build a custom experience to inform, educate, engage and enthrall others about park issues. Invited were staff members from the National Park Service, the Parks Conservancy, and the Presidio Trust, the three agencies responsible for managing the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The Institute at the Golden Gate hosted the Google Earth Outreach team at Cavallo Point Lodge during February 16–17, 2011, who trained staff from these agencies, who themselves are now doing these trainings for their agencies.
