Join fellow Yale alumni for the ninth 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.
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). Volunteers should be prepared to walk approximately 20 minutes (up incline) to work site.
Project is limited to a maximum of 10 volunteers to ensure compliance with COVID protocols that might still be in force. 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!
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.
