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 January 28, 2023 from 1:00-3:00 pm 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 at the Robert Ferguson Observatory classroom followed by a volunteer social potluck at the group camp from 3:00-5:00 pm where you can meet some of our active volunteers.
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 is 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. Registration is required. Bring a notepad and pen, a reusable drink container for warm beverages, dress in layers, and if you feel inclined, bring something to share at the potluck.
