Call to Volunteer: Rec and Park Trail Corps!
Calling all trail fans! Do you love hiking trails in San Francisco? Want to be part of the team that builds and maintains your favorite trails in the city? The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department’s Urban Trails Program invites you to join us in a kick-off volunteer work party, where you will gain valuable experience in the basics of trail maintenance and learn more about the new volunteer Trail Corps.
This volunteer group will help us maintain over 30 miles of urban trails in parks throughout the city from Glen Canyon to Mount Davidson! Volunteers will work alongside program staff and other trail enthusiasts, learning all aspects of trail design, construction and maintenance, while enjoying the great outdoors in some of the city’s most beautiful natural areas.
Our introductory work party will take place on Saturday, May 18 at Glen Canyon Park where volunteers will prune vegetation and perform trail tread maintenance. For more information and future dates and sites, click here.
