Whiskeytown National Recreation Area is always looking for clubs, organizations, and scout groups looking to give back to their community. Contact us if you are interested in hosting a volunteer event or starting a partnership!


Annually, there are four days set aside for community service projects at Whiskeytown. These events are large scale and are open to the public and any organization that wishes to participate. Details for each day’s events will be posted to social media. The days include Martin Luther King Jr. Day (January), Earth Day (April), National Day of Service (September), and Veterans Day (November).


Looking for something else? Whiskeytown’s volunteer program is always growing. Contact us with how you would like to help, and maybe we can find a place for you in Whiskeytown!
