Program areas at Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy

Park enhancements, restoration, and stewardship: park enhancement focused on tunnel tops construction in collaboration with the presidio trust. Hawk hill phase 2 construction and restoration in collaboration with nps, and continued planning for alcatraz fixed wharf with nps, both in marsh elevated pathway with marin county, and china beach improvements with nps. We completed a lidar-based vegetation mapping project for the entire marin county that will provide vital information for future climate and forest resiliency planning and implementation. Our internal reorganization re-focused restoration and stewardship activities on park-wide community-based programming and across-agency stewardship activities in the mount tamalpais watershed.
Youth, volunteer, and community programs:we co-managed the candlestick point sra collaborative to provide a planning and visioning process for community engagement, fundraising, and long-term sustainability, as well as a pilot summer camp. We led a community engagement process for the aquatic park vision document, hosting 5 focus groups, 13 roving ranger visits to gather public input, and online surveys completed by 152 participants. We continued our partnership with the sf public library, including virtual "nature boosts". We continued virtual community partner visits including the sf va medical center. We engaged youth through school, afterschool, and summer programming online as well as restarting in-person learning, primarily working with middle and (continue on schedule o) high schoolers in project based learning and building leadership skills for positive social and environmental change. Programs include migratory story, urban trailblazers, native plant nursery programs, i-yel, and linc.
Park interpretation and visitor services:we continued to rebuild visitor programs on alcatraz. As covid restrictions eased. The removal of social distancing requirements allowed us to grow attendance by 50%. We resumed limited extended hours programming on september 9, and we restarted the alcatraz behind the scenes program on september 30. Strict local covid safety protocols were followed for the majority of the year in our interpretive centers. The alcatraz museum store opened in march 2021, along with the smaller dock store.
