PARKS AND COVID-19

Our parks are here for you

An open letter: Black Lives Matter—here at the Parks Conservancy, on our public lands and across the nation. We condemn anti-Black racism. How can we be anti-racist in the outdoors? Start with these resources to read, watch, and listen.

Read more about the complicated, racist history behind Muir Woods and the injustices that helped foment San Francisco’s queer community. The GGNRA is a Site of Conscience, and we explore the racist history of this land to overcome it.
