Celebrate Endangered Species Day all weekend and get hands-on with restoration projects to benefit the park's imperiled species! The Golden Gate National Parks are home to more federally protected species than any other unit of the National Park System in continental North America—the California red-legged frog, coho salmon, mission blue butterfly, Presidio clarkia, and many more.
