Golden Gate Maintenance Volunteers

COVID-19 Response: Latest on Volunteer Programs

In compliance with Bay Area shelter-in-place orders, the Parks Conservancy, along with our partners at NPS and The Presidio Trust, will not be offering volunteer programming at this time. We will resume coordinating volunteer activities when public health recommendations allow.

In the meantime, we encourage you to keep an eye on our website for announcements. You can also follow us on our social channels like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, or sign up for email updates here.

We sincerely look forward to the day when we can gather and care for our parks together again. Please reach out to volunteer@parksconservancy.org with questions or concerns.

When: Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, 9 am–Noon.

Where: Meeting locations vary.  See list of events for dates and locations.

Come join the fun and help preserve and protect your national park! Maintenance volunteers help protect and beautify the historic landscapes and cultural resources throughout National Park Service managed lands in San Francisco and San Mateo counties―from Fort Mason to Sutro Heights Park, Ocean Beach, and Fort Funston. Projects include litter and sand removal, planting native flora, weeding invasive plants, vegetation pruning, painting, site improvements, and trail maintenance.
