Angel Island State Park is a popular destination with abundant recreational activities and panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay. However with 200,000 annual visitors, there are not always enough staff and volunteers to greet and guide visitors. The Angel Island Conservancy developed helpful walking guides and has sold over 3,000 copies in the welcome center. With this grant, the group is installing several self-help kiosks that will bring the walking guides to many more visitors in an easier and more accessible way.
"For the Angel Island Conservancy, improving the visitor experience has been a key priority, and making our walking guides available 24/7 through centrally-located self-help kiosks, rather than only when the welcome center is open, is one critical step towards ensuring all visitors have the information they need to aid them in using and enjoying Angel Island State Park.”
