Docents monitor habitat conditions for and educate hikers about native foothill yellow-legged frogs. The required training begins at the Sky Oaks Headquarters in Fairfax with a discussion of frog biology and population threats, radio training and methods for engaging the public. At noon we take a 3 mile round-trip hike to Little Carson Falls. The minimum commitment is three 5 hour shifts between March and June, when the frog eggs and tadpoles are at their most vulnerable. Docents must be at least 18 years old. Rain will not cancel. Please RSVP.
Trail crew events are suitable for ages 13 and older.
Age 8 or up can volunteer at habitat restoration events.
Volunteers under the age of 18 must have a permission form signed by a parent or guardian.
Volunteers under the age of 16 must have a parent present at the event.
Please wear close-toed shoes and long pants, dress for variable weather and bring a reusable water bottle. We provide breakfast snacks, water, tools and inspiration. Rain cancellation and fire closure information can be found by calling after 7:30 a.m. on the day of the event.
