Mount Diablo State Park recently issued a call recruiting new volunteers for the upcoming months and inviting community groups and colleagues to take part in service projects.
Some of the upcoming volunteer opportunities include:
• Maintaining and improving hiking trails throughout the park
• Control of invasive plants, such as yellow star thistle
• Repairing and repainting park facilities, such as fences, picnic tables, and outhouses
Silas Ellison, volunteer field projects coordinator at Mount Diablo State Park, said that service projects in nature can be excellent team-building activities.
"They can support feelings of cooperation and respect among school groups, community organizations and co-workers at a business," Ellison said.
Projects can accommodate a range of participant ages and group sizes and can be planned on weekdays or weekends, according to Ellison.
People interested can contact Ellison at firstname.lastname@example.org.
