Volunteer in the Santa Monica Mountains

Volunteers Make Parks Grow

The Santa Monica Mountains provide park volunteer opportunities for all ages and abilities. Last year, volunteers donated more than 83,000 hours to our Southern California parks. Volunteers assist in providing educational programs, building hiking trails, restoring native plants, protecting wildlife habitat, and a variety of other mission critical activities.

We have volunteer opportunities across the Los Angeles area, including: Thousand Oaks, Malibu, Calabasas, San Fernando Valley, Conejo Valley & Ventura County.

Whatever your skillset or interest, there are volunteer opportunities for all ages and skill levels in the Santa Monica Mountains.
