If you’re looking to get your hands dirty and give something back to your parks, there are two upcoming work opportunities for you.

The California State Parks Foundation is partnering with Volunteers for Outdoor California this Saturday September 17th for a third day of work in Chino Hills State Park, focusing on cleaning up trash and restoring overgrown trails. The work day will last from 9AM to 1PM, and the group asks you to register on the CalParks web site so they can have an accurate head-count.

The Sierra Club’s Forest Committee is also planning on getting dirty in the cooler months, aiming to work on different parts of the 500+ mile trail system in the Angeles National Forest. The next event is scheduled for next Saturday, September 24th from 9AM to 3PM, and volunteers are asked to bring boots, gloves, long-sleeved shirts and pants. Tools and instructions will be provided. Contact Leader Ron Schrantz this week to sign up, get more information, and give them an accurate headcount.
