About the event

We will gather in the lobby and take public transit or ride shares to the Ferry Building. Angel Island is a true hidden gem amidst the urban Bay Area, offering a walk through time and a glimpse into its rich past. We will provide a box lunch and we reserved a picnic area. Explore great hiking trails with breathtaking vistas. From 1910 to 1940, the U.S. Immigration Station processed hundreds of thousands of immigrants, primarily from China. Angel Island was a seasonal hunting and gathering location for the local native tribes, including the Coast Miwok. Spanish explorers like Juan Manuel de Ayala used it as a safe refuge and supply stop while mapping the San Francisco Bay.
