Volunteer: Range Watershed Restoration
The Range Watershed Restoration volunteer assists park staff in completing revegetation and erosion control components of conservation/restoration projects on ranches within Point Reyes National Seashore and the North District of Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Duties are project-based, with various types of activities occurring throughout the season.
The volunteer must be able to use hand tools and walk over occasionally rugged or uneven terrain. An interest in native plant revegetation and restoration is helpful.
Volunteers will need to provide personal outdoor gear, such as hiking boots, water bottles, raingear, etc.
Schedule and Time Commitment
Range Watershed Restoration is a drop-in program where volunteers are not required to work more than one day at a time. However, volunteers are welcome to work as many of the work days as desired. For a schedule of workdays please contact Dylan Voeller (see below).
There is also an option for a once-per-week internship-type commitment for those interested. Please apply using the link below or contact Dylan Voeller (see below) for more information.
Benefits to the Volunteer
School groups are limited to 5th grade and above and should provide 1 adult chaperone for every 3-4 students.
