Links between these islands go as far back as the beautiful Victorian officer’s quarters that floated from Yerba Buena to Angel Island in 1882. While islands’ inherent isolation brings wonderful unique perks, like the evolution of endemic species such as the Angel Island Mole, some of the limitations of island life necessitate interdependence with others.
Come learn how isolation in plain sight led to unusual relationships among Angel Island State Park, Yerba Buena and Treasure Islands, Alcatraz and even the “mainland”. Examples from Angel Island, such as the Alcatraz Garden on the south side, Quarters 10 at Camp Reynolds and the Public Health Quarantine Station tell us stories about the symbiotic relationships driven by island life.
