Join the partners of the Tamalpais Lands Collaborative for a day of service on our beloved mountain, as we continue to celebrate our public lands during the National Park Service’s Centennial year.

The rainy winter season is when some of our most important restoration work is completed, and when our need for volunteers is greatest. Together, we will work to improve trails, care for natural landscapes, and improve habitat for birds and other wildlife. Our projects provide a wonderful opportunity for hands-on learning and many of our projects are family-friendly and open to volunteers of all ages. Bring just yourself, your family, friends, or ask us about how to sign up a group. Visit OneTam.org to learn more about our work.

RSVP is required; click “register” below to sign up yourself, your family, or friends. For groups of 10 or more, please contact us at volunteer@onetam.org or (415) 561-3077.
