You are also invited to find your virtual park and stay connected wherever you are in the world.

Golden Gate National Recreation Area [GGNRA] offers extraordinary experiences, but it’s not always possible to get to a park in person. Fortunately we have ways to connect with GGNRA from a distance through digital opportunities and activities to do in your own home or neighborhood. Check back for more additions!

GGNRA partners also have interesting ways to stay connected with the park. Check out the Park's Conservancy suggestions for Online Resources To Visit The Park From Home. Find some suggestions below to engage with parks remotely and check for additional opportunities on park and NPS program websites.


Social Media

It’s not just pretty pictures (although we have plenty of those!). Join the conversation and connect with a national park anytime on social media. Share stories, photos, trip ideas, park experiences, and more with park staff and fellow park enthusiasts. Take a virtual tour, talk to a ranger, or participate in a live presentation. Use #FindYourPark / #EncuentraTuParque.

Many parks and programs have their own accounts to follow and don’t forget to follow the national NPS accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, and YouTube.
