Angel Island Conservancy has an active and qualified Board of Directors with diverse experience in law, financial services, nonprofit administration, and project management. All share an appreciation for Angel Island and a commitment to its preservation.

Linda Moore – “Angel Island is all about stories and connections. The stories of the thousands and thousands of people who have come through the island mirror the stories of the development of our region. And each of us has the opportunity to find a connection to the island, sometimes in wholly unexpected ways. My goal is to help preserve the island and it’s history to honor those who came before us, allowing their stories to be told and connections made for generations to come.”
