How to Celebrate Volunteer Appreciation Month

Published: June 30, 2022

July is Volunteer Appreciation Month, a chance for us to thank the thousands of volunteers that have given their time and effort to ensure that California state parks are beautiful and safe for all to visit and enjoy. There are plenty of opportunities to participate in Volunteer Appreciation Month with California State Parks Foundation. 


So far in 2022, this is what YOU helped us accomplish: 




Check out our volunteer features 

All month, we’ll be featuring some of our park champions and sharing why they volunteer their time to help parks remain beautiful and resilient. Follow along on our Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter channels to be inspired by some of our most dedicated volunteers. 


Join a workday near you 

If you volunteer this month, you’ll not only have a lasting impact on the California state parks you love, you’ll also receive some very special exclusive branded gloves as a thank-you gift. Find a volunteer workday near you at 


Send a thank-you to our volunteers 

We will be crowdsourcing our gratitude to our many volunteers with our Volunteer Appreciation Month form! If you haven’t had a chance to volunteer with us, or you simply want to let our volunteers know how much you appreciate the work they do for our open spaces, let them know! Head to and fill out the form. We will make sure our volunteers see it! 


Donate to California State Parks Foundation 

Your donation helps support our volunteer program by providing volunteers with the equipment they need to do work such as weeding, planting native plants, and safely removing trash from our state parks! Head to to support us and our continued work! 


We hope you will join us for this special month of gratitude.
