Embedded in one of the country’s most visited and influential national parks, the Institute at the Golden Gate operates as an innovation lab, generating knowledge and incubating practical solutions. Working at the intersection of park lands and social good, our work provides the know-how for park leaders and their partners to be part of the solution to complex social challenges, from healthcare to community inequities.
