California State Park Foundation’s Park Champions Program holds volunteer work days in state parks across California. This program was created in response to the unprecedented budget cuts that California State Parks continues to face. In partnership with California State Parks, Park Champions provide consistent, sustainable volunteer support in the areas of park maintenance and beautification.

Park Champions projects improve the quality, safety and preservation of our state parks. Projects in the past year have included trail repair, invasive plant removal, habitat restoration, and the rehabilitation of an historic orchard..

If you enjoy volunteering outdoors, want to work with a fun group of people, and want to make a difference in our state parks, then become a Park Champion and join them for the next work day happening near you!

Activities and locations may vary depending on the work that needs to be done and the time of year.
