Landscaping and maintenance volunteers help to improve park safety & accessibility through preservation and enhancement of beautiful landscapes and maintaining historic buildings and grounds. Activities may include painting, weeding, pruning, mulching, litter pick-up, and more.

Nike Missile Site Preservation: Join us in helping to preserve the historic Nike Missile Site! We are located in the beautiful Marin Headlands with spectacular views overlooking Rodeo Beach and historic Fort Cronkhite. In an effort to restore this site back to its peak operational condition of 1964, many hands are needed for vegetation removal, painting historic features, and general upkeep of the site. As an added bonus, you get the chance to join behind-the scenes tours!
