It’s no surprise that we are major advocates of environmental sustainability.

From the local, sustainable meals offered in park cafés to the green building housing the Crissy Field Center and the compost used to grow plants in the Native Plant Nurseries, there are many more examples of sustainability in practice throughout the Golden Gate National Parks.

In particular, the Parks Conservancy’s Institute at the Golden Gate has a number of initiatives aimed at encouraging environmental preservation and sustainability in our national parks and around the world.
