Education and Youth Programs

Nurturing the Future of Our Parks and Community


What’s a science lab, art studio, history museum, cultural center, community space, and cutting-edge interactive classroom...all rolled into one unforgettable place? The Golden Gate National Parks! In partnership with the National Park Service, local schools, and community organizations, the Parks Conservancy is proud to provide an award-winning suite of hands-on, immersive programs for kids and youth at all grade levels. With a “ladder of learning” approach, we partner with educators to guide young people from K to career-path and beyond, while cultivating the next generation of environmental stewards and socially conscious changemakers.
