Please note that all volunteer programs at Armstrong Redwoods SNR and Austin Creek SRA are cancelled until further notice due to the Wallbridge Fire. Sometime in 2021 fire recovery efforts will begin and we will need volunteers to help. Thanks for your patience. Currently, both parks are not safe for volunteers or the public.
Help promote, restore and protect the natural and cultural resources of Russian River Area State Parks through interpretation, public stewardship, education programming, citizen science and by connecting visitors to their parks! In addition to serving in beautiful Western Sonoma County, volunteers who submit:
- At least 24 hours receive a free Day Use Pass for all State Parks in the Sonoma-Mendocino Coast District
- At least 200 hours receive a free Day Use Pass for all California State Parks
Due to a growing and continued partnership with State Parks Stewards is proud to be able to offer these benefits to Stewards Volunteers as well. Check out our Stewards Volunteer Programs.
Volunteer requirements & training:
All new volunteers must submit a DPR-208 form, Physician's Statement is optional, either at the orientation they attend or on their first day volunteering to whomever is training them. This form is available online or you can fill one out during your orientation, time will be given for this. In addition to this paperwork all new volunteers must attend one General Orientation. If you miss the date of the orientation, you can still volunteer with us - just be sure to attend an orientation at some point in the future. Finally, to make this process easy and streamlined please view the New Volunteer Checklist.
NEW VOLUNTEER CHECKLIST - check back for an update soon.
Throughout the year, Stewards offers trainings for most of our volunteer programs, as well as informative and engaging seminars.
