A dynamic hub of youth engagement for the Golden Gate National Parks, the Center is a model program of the National Park Service, the Presidio Trust, and the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy. Crissy Field Center programs encourage new generations to become bold leaders for thriving parks, healthy communities, and more environmentally just society.
The Center’s state-of-the-art, green education facility consists of classrooms, labs, and gathering spaces for youth enrolled in the Center’s camps, field trips, and programs. With a focus on engaging people who traditionally have had little—if any—access to national parks, the Center has developed strong partnerships with schools and community centers in underserved areas, providing a majority of its programming for free or at low cost.
