This is a special program for youth on the last Saturday of each month, October - April.

Fulfill school required community service hours and have a blast with friends, all while helping to restore your national park. Join us at locations throughout the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

Volunteering on trails is fun, rewarding, and great exercise—and it counts for volunteer hours! These days are just for teens, so come with friends, classmates, or your school club and help do trail maintenance and habitat restoration along some of the most scenic trails in the park.
