VOLUNTEER

For those who prefer a more “hands on” approach to helping protect and restore Los Peñasquitos Lagoon, there are volunteer opportunities available through State Parks, such as the Park Champions Program. Park Champions were organized to provide State Parks with organized volunteer support for projects that include: trail repair, invasive plant removal, and habitat restoration. Find out more about Park Champions and opportunities within Los Peñasquitos Lagoon or other parts of the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve (http://calparks.org/help/park-champions/). Corporate groups are welcome too with opportunities ranging from invasive plant removal to trash and debris clean ups.

Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world, For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.

– Margaret Mead
