Park Adventures Ends in Print, More Adventures Begin Online
By Michele Gee, Chief of Interpretation and Education, Golden Gate National Parks
STANDING AMONG THE HISTORIC BATTERIES and forts that overlook the Golden Gate, it can feel like time is standing still. You might feel that not much has changed in the parks' 40 year history-after all, their beauty remains unmatched and undiminished. Then the cell phone of the person next to you goes off, blaring a Justin Bieber song. Another person is taking a photo with her smartphone and updating her Facebook status. No, time has not stood still.
Thank you for visiting our parks. We hope you enjoy your next destination, online or on the trail!
