Volunteers for Outdoor California

Anthony Chabot Regional Park


This project will reroute the Towhee Trail, which currently goes through the park's corporation yard, passing through dumpsters and heavy equipment.  The reroute will consist of about 1,000 feet of new trail that will bypass the corporation yard, and pass through a meadow.  The work will involve clearing vegetation and cutting a new 4 foot wide trail bed.

How to sign up

Volunteers must be age 14 or older. Volunteers under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Volunteers under age 18 must have their parent or legal guardian complete two waiver forms in order to participate, as discussed below.

Please sign up for every option below that applies to you. Options are presented by days: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Please volunteer for as many days as you like. Saturday and Sunday are the days we'll be working on the trail. We also will have volunteers at center camp, including in the camp kitchen, on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  It is important that you sign up for each day you plan to volunteer.  We buy food and plan breakfasts and lunch based on the number of volunteers that day. Friday dinners are provided only for for project and crew leaders and Friday camp/kitchen volunteers.  Please note that Saturday dinner asks for a specific registration. 

COVID Precautions:   V-O-Cal puts safety first.  Please register only if you are vaccinated. Protocols will be used in connection with food preparation and service (kitchen crew will mask in confined areas and during food service), and social distancing in outdoor areas will be requested.

What comes next?

After you register, updates will be communicated to you largely through this Web site.  Before the project we will publish a Fact Sheet that should tell you everything you want to know about the project weekend (e.g., the specific schedule, what we recommend you wear and bring with you).

You will be required to complete a waiver form (included with the Fact Sheet) in order to participate. To speed up check-in on the project weekend, we recommend you print the waiver form at home and bring it with you when you check in. If you are unable to print and complete the form in advance, copies will be available at center camp. Volunteers under age 18 must make arrangements to have their parent or legal guardian sign the forms.

Thank you for planning to be part of this project!
