As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, we reflect on the formation of this 82,000-acre national park in our midst. The effort started with then-SPUR Executive Director John Jacobs, Sierra Club President Ed Wayburn, and volunteer Amy Meyer, who together founded People for a Golden Gate National Recreation Area, supported by college student Mia Moroe. Hear Amy Meyer and Mia Monroe relate how enthusiastic public support, smart politics, and a little bit of luck changed our region forever.
