The American River Parkway Foundation enlists the assistance of thousands of volunteers each year. These volunteers play a vital role in the conservation of the American River Parkway. Throughout the year, volunteer opportunities exist through River Clean Ups, Invasive Plant Removal, Trail Maintenance, Habitat Restoration and all of our many programs and events. Below are just a few ways you can become involved.
Want to get started right away? Looking to fulfill school community service requirements? Sustainable Saturdays and our other, open volunteer days are great one-time volunteer opportunities.
Join us for the Great American River Clean Up in September, Spring Clean Up in April, or any of our monthly River Clean Ups throughout the year. Help remove unwanted debris and waste from the Parkway and River.
Invasive Plant Patrol
Invasive plant patrol volunteers work in various habitats throughout the Parkway to remove non-native species, including red sesbania, yellow star thistle, Spanish broom, and more, that inhibit native vegetation and wildlife.
Join a group of adventurous volunteers who help remove tens of thousands of invasive plants each year!
