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.

Gather your crew of folks and work together on a fun service project that makes a difference in your parks and community! Our volunteer programs are great team experiences for community organizations, youth groups, schools, and faith groups. Take a break from your routine, get outside, get your hands dirty, and enjoy your spectacular national parks next door.

No experience necessary. We provide all of the tools, training, and leadership.

Scheduling a Group Program

Select a project(s) from our List of Available Projects.

Submit a Group Project Request Form and let us know the project(s) you would like to join.

If you do not find a fit from our available projects list, please reach out to us with your availability - we may be able to accommodate your request. Please keep in mind that we need at least 3 weeks to schedule a successful group volunteer project.

If you selected an available project(s), we will respond to you in 2-3 business days with confirmation and details.

Please note, spring is our busiest season—all requests may take longer than usual.

Once you receive a confirmation, share the details with your team. Make sure your team is prepared to be outside, to get dirty, and to have a great day in the parks. Onsite, you’ll be working alongside experienced park staff and interns. All necessary instruction, tools, and gloves will be provided.
