Armstrong Redwoods/Austin CreekTrail Crew
The Armstrong/Austin Creek Trail Crew has been assisting State Parks with trail maintenance, bridge building, and other important projects since 1993. This active group, of men and women of all ages and abilities, comes together monthly to tackle stewardship projects in both Armstrong Redwoods and Austin Creek.
Tasks: The assignment for the day may be working in the grove repairing fences or cleaning up and ensuring the safety of the trails. Other days, they may take their lunches with them to the beautiful backcountry in Austin Creek for a day of trail maintenance. Read the Armstrong Trail Crew duty statement for a complete description.
Meeting times: The crew meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 9:00 AM in front of the Stewards' Volunteer Office. Depending on the project, volunteers can expect to work a shift of up to 6 hours.
Training and requirements: New volunteers are required to attend one of the three General Orientation Sessions offered during the year, however trail crew volunteers can drop in to any work day and don't have to wait to attend an orientation before beginning to volunteer. No formal training or previous experience is required. All new volunteers are required to complete and turn in a hard copy of the CA State Parks DPR 208 paperwork. Read our Volunteer Handbook for more information about becoming a volunteer.
