Volunteer Trail Work Days

After a long dry season hiatus, we are gearing up for another season of trail building on the Flow Trail at Soquel Demonstration State Forest (SDSF).

Volunteer involvement is a critical part of completing this trail. We encourage you to join us on volunteer trail work days, which will take place on weekends twice a month. Check out the schedule below and stay tuned for details. Keep in mind that trail work days are weather dependent. Windy and wet weather may produce hazardous conditions, or limit trail work day productivity.

If you want to help out, but aren’t keen on digging, there are still lots of ways you can help out without breaking a sweat. Check out our Help Wanted page for ways you can get involved.

Can you Sponsor a Volunteer Trail Work Day?
We depend on volunteers to build the trail, and we depend on sponsors to keep our volunteers fed, hydrated, and happy during our work days. If your company is interested in helping MBoSC put on an A+ work day, contact us for sponsorship information. This is a great way to promote your business while supporting a community driven project.
