The Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy at 25: A Partnership Success Story

This August marks the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy’s 25th year of operation, and they are excited to celebrate a quarter century of supporting the national parklands at the Golden Gate through partnerships and volunteerism. Over this time, the organization has raised more than $100 million in park aid - more than any other nonprofit park association has provided to a national park in the U.S., according to the Association of Partners for Public Lands.

Among their achievements are transforming 100 acres of asphalt into a spectacular shoreline park at Crissy Field; serving more than 15 million visitors with the Alcatraz audio tour; growing 1 million native plants for restoration projects; enlisting 150,000 volunteers who have provided 4 million hours of volunteer time; producing more than 600 books, maps, guides and interpretive products; and building 4 new visitor centers.
