Stewardship, as we define it, is the careful and responsible management of our natural resources and State Parks lands. As an organization, Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods is involved in many stewardship projects. The Willow Creek Watershed Restoration Project was a multi-million dollar project. Stewards acted as the fiscal agent for over 1 million dollars in restoration efforts in the watershed which resulted in the return of coho to the watershed after ten years of work by many agency, private enterprise and nonprofit partners.
Budget and personnel constraints in our State Parks have created a great need for the general public to give of their time and energy to help in the management, monitoring, maintenance, preservation, protection and restoration of local State Parks' lands, watersheds, trails and wildlife. Stewards supports a number of "Volunteers in the Parks" (VIP) opportunities for those who wish to participate in these hands-on endeavors. Through your efforts, you can help preserve these treasures for generations to come while enjoying the camaraderie of like-minded volunteers.
We encourage new volunteers entering one of the Stewardship Programs to attend one of the three General Orientations for New/Returning Volunteers training sessions and Education Seminars that cover their areas of interest. Most of our stewardship opportunities involve hands-on training in the field. Volunteers learn by working side-by-side with experienced State Parks volunteers. The number of hours of commitment vary.
Information on the various Stewardship opportunities can be reached through the links above.
