Register to Volunteer

Safety is a top priority for California State Parks Foundation. We have been closely monitoring local, state, and federal agencies regarding the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. As a result of this, we have made the tough decision to postpone all upcoming volunteer workdays until further notice. 


Come volunteer with us and help our state parks stay in tip-top shape. We’re always looking for volunteers to protect biodiversity by removing invasive plants, maintain safe hiking trails by making regular repairs, and keep parks beautiful with painting and landscaping projects. Volunteering with us is a great way to make new friends, learn new skills, and spend a morning outside. Hope you can join us for a workday soon!
