Park Improvement Projects

The East Bay Regional Park District manages thousands of acres of land and maintains over 1,330 miles of trails. Maintenance and rehabilitation of the parks is an ongoing process. In order to protect the parks resources, volunteers are needed to provide labor. In return, volunteers learn about land stewardship and resource conservation while giving back to the parks they enjoy. Help improve the quality of life for people and our wildlife treasures.
