Volunteer at Arastradero Preserve: Habitat Restoration every 2nd and 4th Saturday

Volunteers should expect to engage in a variety of hands-on activities that enrich the environment and protect the wildlife who call the preserve home.

Saturday morning workdays are typically larger group meetups (10-20 people), and tasks are often varied and teamwork-oriented. Participants will have the opportunity to mingle with fellow volunteers, observe flora and fauna, and learn restoration skills such as planting, weeding, watering, or mulching. Saturday mornings bring many visitors to the preserve, including hikers, bikers, dogs (on-leash), and the occasional horse, creating a lively and energetic environment.

Waivers/Registration:All participants must register & approve the online waiver through this Eventbrite page. Youth under 18 must have their legal guardian approve the waiver on their behalf. Volunteers age 12 & under require an accompanying adult.

Parking:Please park in the auxillary/special event parking lot (left of the entrance) to avoid overcrowding the main lot. Look for a staff member with a volunteer parking sign to direct you into the lot.

Alternate transportation: Please carpool or bike, if possible. Arastradero is a short drive or bike ride from the I-280 Page Mill Park & Ride. There is a bike rack next to the bathrooms at Arastradero.

Meeting space:Walk past the information kiosk in the parking lot, down the concrete path through the gateway garden. Check in with staff next to the first brown building on your left.

Prepare for Working Outdoors:

  • Water bottle

  • Long pants, long sleeves recommended

  • Sturdy close-toed shoes that can get dirty

  • Hat/sunscreen or rain gear/boots

  • Plan for potential exposure to sun, poison oak, ticks

We will provide gloves, tools, and light snacks.




Grassroots Ecology encourages people from all identities and backgrounds to participate in our programs. Many of our programs are outdoors and involve moving and working in a variety of landscapes. If you have accessibility concerns (i.e., allergies, limited mobility, learning differences), our projects are flexible and we are happy to work with you. Please reach out to the workday facilitator so we can best prepare for your participation.
