Volunteer Program Information

Each year, over 500 volunteers commit thousands of hours preserving and protecting open space lands by participating in a variety of ways such as educating and inspiring visitors, constructing and maintaining trails, and removing invasive, non-native vegetation.

Here's your invitation to discover the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District and play an important role in preserving open space. The District welcomes your skills, both indoors and outdoors, and with your help will continue to:

  • Protect and restore critical natural resources

  • Conserve open space for the future

  • Encourage appreciation and stewardship of open space

  • Provide information to preserve visitors

  • Plant for a greener future

For a brief description of the individual volunteer programs, check out information on how to become a volunteer. Find the opportunity that best suits you.
