Golden Gate National Parks is a large and complex urban unit of the National Park System located in the San Francisco Bay Area encompassing over 80,000 acres and 91 miles of shoreline, and includes iconic sites such as Alcatraz Island, Muir Woods National Monument, Fort Point National Historic Site, the Presidio, and the Marin Headlands. It is also home to 1,287 plant and animal species and an amazing richness of biological diversity. Over half of the bird species of North America and nearly one third of California's plant species are found within the park's legislative boundaries. Of those, 37 are listed as federally threatened or endangered.
