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: Saturdays, 10am–1pm

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

With a belief that hands-on experience with nature inspires an ethic of stewardship and care, the San Mateo Park Stewardship team connects interested volunteers to restoration projects, and develops numerous long-term partnerships that actively engage youth and adult audiences in the care of the parklands.

We rely on the support of local community members, from drop-in volunteers to school groups, to help us in this effort to ensure that these local rare species and unique ecological communities will be here for generations to come.

For upcoming San Mateo Volunteer Opportunities see events listed below. We have regular programs on Saturdays. Please join us!
