Climate Change and Golden Gate


As a result of global warming, our Earth's changing climate will continue to profoundly alter national parks including Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Extreme heat waves, droughts, more wildland fires, coastal flooding and erosion, and other forms of habitat destruction are among probable scenarios in the coming decades.

The National Park Service and Golden Gate National Recreation Area are taking action to reduce our fossil fuel emmissions, to educate staff and visitors about the problem and its solutions, and to develop new land management strategies in the face of coming changes.
