From Mission Dolores Park to Golden Gate Park, there’s a wealth of exciting volunteer opportunities in our parks. Volunteers participate in a variety of park maintenance projects, including weeding, planting, mulching, habitat restoration, trash pickup, painting, and trail work.
Habitat restoration work happens primarily in the undeveloped outdoor spaces managed by our . Volunteers can participate in a wide variety of restoration activities, such as planting and propagating native plants, controlling erosion, and monitoring wildlife habitat.
We welcome drop-in volunteers! We can accommodate individuals or groups on a one-time or ongoing basis any day of the week. (More sign up information at end of post.)
