The Discovery Center hosts a ¾ mile walking trail and a large native-species garden exhibit. Both require consistent maintenance. Volunteer activities can include monitoring restored sites, removing invasive plant species, repairing minor erosion problems, trimming overgrown vegetation and other general maintenance. Your volunteer efforts will support a safe outdoor learning environment for field trips and help protect our native plant species.
Project details: There are five different trails around the Agua Hedionda Lagoon, and it’s important they are all in tip top shape for visitors. Volunteers will meet at one of the trail heads and help with anything from picking up trash, weeding, removing invasive species, trimming back plants, to even helping with rehabilitation projects. This volunteer event is open to the public. Volunteers of all ages are welcome but anyone who is under 16 years of age must be accompanied by a chaperone.
Tools: All tools needed for the trail maintenance and restoration projects will be provided, including gloves, trash bags, trash pickers, shovels, clippers and shears.
Bring/Wear: Volunteers are asked to wear long pants and clothing you don’t mind getting dirty, closed-toed shoes and sun protection. Please bring your own water and snacks.
