Earth Day 2017 provides an opportunity for all of us to do something meaningful for our planet by giving back to the state parks in our communities. Thousands of volunteers will be needed throughout California to assist with projects such as campfire center improvements, habitat restoration, native garden conservation, fence building, trail maintenance and beach cleanup.
We encourage you to join us on this important occasion, to do your part to restore and care for the places where we live, work, and play for this and future generations.
Over the past 18 years, 83,785 participants have built bridges, split rail fences and boardwalks, conducted river, lake and beach cleanups, restored trails and habitats with native plants, and installed recycling bins and irrigation systems. These accomplishments would not be possible without the support of our members, park users, dedicated community volunteers and our corporate sponsors, whose generous contributions provide the funding and in-kind support needed to achieve the program’s goals.
Registration is open! Select a park near you for project details, start times, directions, and contact information. This section will be updated regularly as more information becomes available.
We gratefully acknowledge the generous contributions of the following sponsors. Without their support this event would not be possible:
