About the Event
Join fellow Yale alumni for the tenth year at Angel Island State Park. Located in the middle of San Francisco Bay, Angel Island Immigration Station was the first stop for hundreds of thousands of immigrants crossing the Pacific Ocean between 1910 and 1940. It is an important part of American and Asian American history, with incomparable vistas of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and the Bay. Visit the website for more information about the history of this site through which thousands of Asian and other immigrants came to this country (please do not send questions to them).
Volunteers will be working landscape to preserve this important historical site for future generations. Volunteers will also get a free guided tour of the site by Grant Din ‘79, volunteer with AISP and Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation. Physical work will include beautification activities at the site (weeding, raking, cleaning, collecting trash). If you have favorite tools, please bring them, though the park has a large supply. Volunteers should be prepared to walk approximately 20 minutes (up incline) to work site.
Project is limited to a maximum of 25 volunteers. This popular project fills up fast! Ferry passage and park entrance is free, but space is limited so early registration is highly encouraged. Please only sign up if you fully intend to participate! If you need to leave before the 5pm park boat, you may need to pay your own way. RSVP HERE
We expect that there will be a waiting list, so please notify us by phone or email as early as possible if (after registration) you are unable to attend. This would be greatly appreciated.
Recommended parking is in the lot between Chase Bank and CVS and is $5 exact change (enter 1599 Tiburon Blvd. for the CVS address in your GPS). It's about a ten minute walk to the ferry dock, so plan accordingly.
Please bring your lunch and water. The weather can start off foggy and end up sunny and warm, so wear layers.
