The Parks Conservancy hosts a number of events to show our appreciation for members of all capacities. Learn more about each event in the descriptions below.
Young professionals committed to the preservation of our Golden Gate National Parks come together to celebrate the majestic views of our Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. Support of FOGG and the Parks Conservancy provides summer camp scholarships to the Crissy Field Center, bringing outdoor education and experiences to urban youth (some of whom have never gone camping or seen the Golden Gate Bridge).
Trails Forever Dinner
The annual Trails Forever Dinner features casual attire, trailside cocktails, a seated dinner in a spectacular park setting, a live auction of exclusive park experiences, and a campfire with toe-tapping tunes. This year’s milestone celebration marks ten years of support for our Trails Forever initiative throughout the Golden Gate National Parks. For more information or to purchase tickets, please call (415) 561-3039 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
At our annual Members Day in May, we celebrate Parks Conservancy members and our Golden Gate National Parks. Whether it features kite-flying on Crissy Field or hikes and treasure hunts in the Presidio, Members Day is fun for the whole family and our way of saying thank you for supporting the parks!
Members Hiking Series
A special benefit for Parks Conservancy members, the Members Hiking Series offers monthly hikes and events with park experts throughout the Golden Gate National Parks. From easy strolls in the Presidio to strenuous climbs in Pacifica, there’s something for everyone. Recent hikes include raptor spotting on Hawk Hill in the Marin Headlands, a kid-friendly roam around Crissy Field Marsh, and a historical tour of the hidden beaches at Lands End.
WKS Fourth of July
As a thank you to William Kent Society members for supporting the Golden Gate National Parks’ priority programs, these members have access to a number of special benefits, including the ever-popular July 4th fireworks from “front row seats” above Aquatic Park.
WKS Family Kampfire
The William Kent Society Family Kampfire offers a family-friendly experience of the “wild side” of your national parks. Participants enjoy gourmet and sustainable food booths, live music, wildlife talks, storytelling by the fire, animal habitat building, and more. All William Kent Society Family Kampfire gifts go to support youth programs in the Golden Gate National Parks.
