About Our Portal_Site
The SF_Portal was formely located in Crissy Field. The Parks Conservancy’s signature project, Crissy Field was transformed starting in 2001 from a former military airfield into a vibrant environmental showcase through the generosity of the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund and Colleen and Robert Haas, as well as thousands of community volunteers and donors. Today, the restored Crissy Field is a stunning place to walk or bike on a flat, hard-packed promenade with iconic views of the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge. A beautiful, and much-loved trail winds through Crissy Field between Marina Green and Fort Point.
Anne-Marie Litak lives and breathes in San Francisco. She laughs often, asks questions, and talks with strangers. Having studied Critical Theory, Creative Writing, and American Studies at UC Davis, she now applies her curiosity through the creation of site-specific art installations, guerilla theater performances, "identity correction" hijinks, and other culture-jamming work. She has happily worked with the SF Institute of Possibility, the San Francisco Mime Troupe, and Ai Weiwei's @Large exhibit on Alcatraz.
The mission of the Parks Conservancy is to preserve the Golden Gate National Parks, enhance the park visitor experience, and build a community dedicated to conserving the parks for the future.
They are a community-supported nonprofit organization transforming places—and people—through conservation and improvement of these remarkable national parks. Learn more at their website.
