We need your help! Come out and lend a hand while enjoying the scenic landscapes of the Golden Gate National Parks. Your contribution is vital to the health of our parks and our community.
We offer a wide range of volunteer opportunities throughout San Francisco, the Presidio, Marin, and San Mateo counties. Most options do not require training or a lengthy time commitment and welcome drop-in volunteers. It’s a great way to meet others, as well as a fun and rewarding way to spend the day.
For more information on our volunteer programs, click on the opportunities listed below or search for upcoming opportunities on the Park Calendar.
For groups larger than five individuals, please visit our Groups Volunteer page.
