Become one of an elite group of trailblazers by joining a groundbreaking new class of Volunteers in Parks at Castle Rock State Park, known for its rock-climbing, hiking and backpacking opportunities, and Portola Redwoods State Park, popular with campers and hikers.

Volunteers will learn about the parks’ natural and cultural history, park stewardship, trail etiquette, safety, visitor contact and how to use field radios. After the training sessions, group hikes will be held in each Park.
To register please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include a short one or two paragraph biography to tell us who you are and why you are interested in becoming a volunteer in either Portola Redwoods or Castle Rock State Park (or both).

Two of the 5-hour training sessions will be at Las Cumbres Community Center off Skyline Blvd. (4/20/and 5/4) located off of Skyline Blvd. (Hwy 35) about 2 miles southeast of the Castle Rock State Park entrance. The training on April 27 will meet at the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District facility at Skyline Blvd. and Alpine Road.
