Things to Do

Visit and learn about the Parks, in person or at home!


Thanks to YOU we are leaving the Golden Gate National Parks better than we found them: Improving trails, building overlooks, and growing plants. And we're engaging the next generation of park stewards through richly rewarding opportunities for young people of all ages. Scroll down to see our wide variety of programs. At this time, we do not have any volunteering opportunities. Events are limited but sometimes available.
