Service Projects 2017

One of the rank requirements for Boy Scouts is to perform service.  Sometimes the service is Troop sponsored, other times the Scout can participate independently.  Below are two excellent local opportunities for Scouts to get outside and give back to our wonderful parks.  Please be sure to record your service hours using our log sheet.

CA State Parks Foundations Park Champions Program holds volunteer work days in state parks across California. 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, the rehabilitation of an historic orchard, fence construction, bridge construction, and re-painting park structures. If you enjoy volunteering outdoors, want to work with a fun group of people, and you want to make a difference in our state parks, then become a Park Champion and join us for the next work day happening near you!
