Weekly Volunteer Programs
Volunteer on your own, with your family, or a few friends
ALERT: During the government shutdown due to a lapse in federal appropriations, most park volunteer programs are canceled, with the exception of those at the Presidio operated by the Presidio Trust, and those with California State Parks, Marin County Parks, and the Marin Municipal Water District. During a federal lapse in appropriations, the National Park Service (NPS) is prohibited from allowing or coordinating volunteer activities. Also, access to federal parklands closed during a shutdown is prohibited. Activities may not resume until a federal appropriation to fund the NPS is passed. Please refer to our calendar of events for the latest program updates, and click here to learn more about how you can help during the shutdown.
For individuals and small groups (less than 5 people).
Come out and lend a hand while enjoying the scenic landscapes of the Golden Gate National Parks. We offer a wide range of volunteer opportunities throughout San Francisco, the Presidio, Marin, and San Mateo counties. It’s a great way to meet others, it’s rewarding, and it’s fun!
No experience or commitment necessary. We provide all of the tools, training, and leadership.
