Join us to show our parks a little post-shutdown TLC!

volunteer; MLK Day

Since we were unable to host our community of volunteers on MLK Day of Service, we are calling for a do-over! Now that we're back in business, we've got a lot of work to do to get our Golden Gate National Parks back in tip-top shape–both backlogged projects, as well as new repair and restoration projects.

We also want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all our volunteers, members, and community of friends who supported the parks during the partial federal shutdown. It certainly highlighted just how vital our volunteers are to our parks. We missed you and are excited to get back out in the parks and roll up our sleeves with you!

We have a number of projects lined up throughout the parks – multiple locations, varied times, and something for just about everyone. Please check out the project details below and signup today! More projects will be added soon, so be sure to check back often.
