Several times a year, experts present programs at the visitor center and guided hikes focusing on park wildlife, geology, and botany. Volunteers help maintain the hiking trails and wildlife habitat in the park.


GGNRA Coastside Park Volunteers

Volunteer in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) right here on the coast. Trail Keepers enjoy a flexible, family-friendly schedule, regular exercise, outdoor learning, and skill development, all while supporting their beloved parks. By monitoring trails, Trail Keepers collect important information for the National Park Service Trail Crew and maintenance and natural resources staff, and share park history with other visitors. Get to know new trails, while enjoying old favorites. Call 415-561-3068 for information on Trail Keeper orientations and volunteer opportunities. Explore other GGNRA internship and volunteer opportunities year-round, including the Coastside's four national parks (Mori Point, Milagra Ridge, Rancho Corral de Tierra, and Sweeney Ridge), plus San Francisco's Ocean Beach and The Presidio, and Marin's Muir Woods. Projects include planting, weeding, mulching, beach cleanup, trail maintenance, and more. Register online at Parks Conservancy. For information, call 415-561-3077 or email volunteer@parksconservancy.org
