Description: 
Join fellow Yale alumni, friends and family for the seventh year at the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation. Located in 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. 
 
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. Visit www.aiisf.org for more information about the history of this site through which thousands of Asian and other immigrants came to this country.
 
We will take a CA State Parks ferry to the island and walk to the work site, work for a few hours, then take our tour. Afterward, you can hang out, hike up to the top of Mt. Livermore for an amazing 360 degree view of the Bay Area, or head back on a ferry 20 minutes after the hour. There may be a nominal charge for the return (less than $10), but we are trying to arrange for free rides. If you can wait until 5 p.m., there are definitely free rides on the returning state boat. If you need to car pool, please contact Grant Din ‘79 at grant@tonaidin.net.
 
Recommended parking is behind the Bank of America at 1601 Tiburon Blvd., in Tiburon, Marin County - $5 all day and the machine accepts credit cards.
