Spreading the Word on Climate Change

The heart of the initiative to reduce our own and our visitors' carbon footprint is education. The park has a unique position to reach millions of visitors and educate the public about climate change and the need to lead a more sustainable lifestyle.
It starts with Golden Gate's rangers, Public Affairs Division and other staff, as well as our partners and volunteers. We are educating ourselves with relevant and accurate information and then helping our visitors understand the threats and solutions through public outreach.
Here's our commitment:
Trash is a big part of our society and what we do with that trash affects greenhouse gas emissions, wildlife and our quality of life.
