Join us to officially kick off the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Summer Service Initiative and Outdoor Youth Mentoring Program, following the conclusion of the National Conference on Volunteering and Service, on June 25 by volunteering in the Golden Gate National Parks.
An extraordinary gathering of environmentalists, Nobel Laureates, CEOs, philanthropists, venture capitalists, scientists, social entrepreneurs, youth activists and other leaders in their fields will come together at the gateway to the Pacific Rim April 2-3, 2009.
Volunteer in the Golden Gate National Parks at your doorstep. It’s fun, it’s healthy, and it makes a difference—the perfect way to pitch in on a momentous day and an opportunity for people to give back to the park sites we all love and cherish.
A short drive (or ferry ride) out of San Francisco will take you to some of the most magnificent parks in the area: Alcatraz Island, Alcatraz Gardens, Muir Woods National Monument, Stinson Beach, Marin Headlands, and many more.
Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County is one of the Bay Area's most popular outdoor destinations. World class views, redwood groves, waterfalls, and even an outdoor theater draw about 3 million people a year, but most of them never see a mysterious jumble of ruins on the mountain's West Peak.
Learn about amazing wildlife, new trails and visitor amenities, fascinating people, expert-recommended hikes, and upcoming park events—all delivered to your inbox, for free.
