You Can Make A Difference…

Anyone can donate their time and effort to providing essential services at GGNRA. Volunteer opportunities at Golden Gate National Recreation Area are as diverse and abundant, as the natural and cultural resources of the park.

Volunteers at Golden Gate play a vital role in almost all aspects of park operations:

  • Designing and conducting information programs for the general public.

  • Removing non-native plants, growing native plants, or working in one of the park's nurseries.

  • Cleaning up garbage and restoring historic structures and sites

  • Working with park scientists to protect endangered species and conduct scientific research

 

Each volunteer's contribution makes a big difference! Depending on the opportunity, volunteers may donate several months at a time or perhaps a few hours. Volunteers at Golden Gate National Recreation Area: Muir Woods National Monument, Alcatraz Island, Presidio of San Francisco, and Fort Point National Historic Site help present the diverse resources of one of America's most popular National Parks to today's visitors, and help preserve these precious resource for future generations.
