Enjoy the beauty of this special place in Sonoma Valley while joining our wonderful community of volunteers. Volunteer with Team Sugarloaf and become an integral piece in keeping Sugarloaf Ridge State Park operating. Join us for an orientation on February 24, 2024, from 11:00am-2:00pm to learn about the history of Sugarloaf, how Sonoma Ecology Center operates the park, and what volunteer opportunities we have. The orientation will take place in the Robert Ferguson Observatory classroom followed by a social, where prospective volunteers will meet current volunteers. Learn more here.
Volunteers play a vital role at Sugarloaf. We have a host of volunteer opportunities to restore and maintain this natural treasure and to help to keep Sugarloaf open to the public. Initial training is provided, with periodic docent enrichment events. We need volunteers to:
– Become docents at the Visitor Center
– Direct visitors at the entrance kiosk
– Assist with data entry
– Aid project research and grant-writing
– Work on trail and park maintenance projects
– Facilitate special events and parking
– Spanish/English literacy and conversational fluency are a plus
View more volunteer opportunities and specifics on our website. Experience is not necessary but welcomed, as well as a willingness to learn and the desire to share that knowledge with our visitors. We ask for a minimum of 4 hours per month of volunteer service. Please create a Better Impact account to start the process. Bring a notepad and pen, a reusable drink container for warm beverages, dress in layers, and if inclined, bring something to share for the potluck social.
Attending a Volunteer Orientation is required to become a volunteer at Sugarloaf. English is needed for all positions. Spanish-English literacy or fluency is a plus for all positions. Please share this opportunity!
