The Institute at the Golden Gate

The Institute at the Golden Gate is a program of the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, a nonprofit partner of the National Park Service. Our mission is to position parks and public lands as the solution to some of society’s biggest social and environmental challenges. To work towards this goal, the Institute uses a proven model of collaboration and innovation, which includes bringing together groups from the business, nonprofit, and government sectors.
