Please note: The SMC Parks Stewardship Corps has finished work for the 2018/19 season. Thank you to everyone who came out! Please check in with us in late fall / early winter to get involved for the 2019/20 season.
Make a difference through volunteering with the Stewardship Corps. Volunteers and park staff work together at different locations each week to restore native habitat and beautify the San Mateo County Parks. Come explore the County Parks while lending a hand with invasive plant removal, planting native plants, and seed collection.
