In October volunteers from FOCC and California State Parks Foundation (CSPF) groomed almost 1 mile of trail. And guess what, there is still more to do! Surprise!

Come help! Get a great workout, enjoy nature, while supporting our park. No prior experience is needed. What is required is your team spirit and positive attitude.

We’ll focus on grooming 1+ miles of our popular multi-use trails. We’ll cut back overgrowth, weed-whip encroaching plants, rake away duff, and restore trails to their full width. Your efforts will improve visibility and help reduce erosion (assuming we have a wet winter!).

We are offering free camping the night before the event. This offer is open only to volunteers. Camping details will be sent to you after you register on the CSPF website. For more information about our campground go to https://friendsofchinacamp.org/visit-the-park/camping/.

Date: Saturday, November 13
Time: 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

•Please register on the CSPF website. Once registered, you will receive additional information about what to bring and where to meet.

•Wear long pants, long-sleeved shirt, and close-toed shoes. Bring a mask, work gloves, and two filled water containers. A hat and sunscreen are advised.

•Ages 14 and older are welcome. Minors must be accompanied by an adult and bring a waiver signed by a legal guardian.

•Please arrive 15 minutes early to allow time to park, check in and to be ready for instructions. Be sure to bring your signed waiver (included with your registration).
