How do I volunteer to help maintain the trails?
There are a number of ways for a person to volunteer. The City and its partner agencies participate in several programs and welcome your support at events throughout the year.

The Bay Area Ridge Trail Council provides additional opportunities to maintain trails on a regional basis and posts a current schedule of events.

The Friends of the Guadalupe River Trail & Gardens work with local corporations to conduct Corporate Work Days to clean up the park and trail.
