PG&E employees and their family and friends donated more than 300 volunteer hours on Saturday, April 16, to improve and enhance Angel Island State Park.
The Angel Island location in Marin County was one of 18 across the state where PG&E volunteers celebrated Earth Day 2011.
Despite only being accessible by ferry, the park attracts 200,000 visitors a year to its historic buildings, military sites and miles of trails. The island’s centuries of history, as well as current visitor information has been compiled by the Angel Island Association and can be found on the group’s website.
Geisha Williams, PG&E’s senior vice president of electric operations, and Kent Harvey, the company’s chief financial officer, led the PG&E volunteers as they lent a hand to park staff across the island, helping maintain key landmarks such as the Immigration Station and visitors dock at Ayala Cove. In addition to the satisfaction of a job well done the California State Parks Foundation declared the day “a great success.”
