Glen Canyon Park - San Francisco!

July 17-19, 2015 in the heart of San Francisco

For our 8th partnership with the Natural Areas Program at SF Rec&Park,
V-O-Cal is headed back to the site of our very first SF project! V-O-Cal provides a unique opportunity to volunteers, the ability to camp in a city park, and this project is no exception.

Glen Park boasts 70 beautiful acres and this project involves working on multiple trails, enabling volunteers to see a good part of the park. The work will consist of widening the tread, brushing back trees, re-reouting the trail, etc., all amidst beautiful views, rock formations and lushly forested hillsides. After the trail work Saturday, V-O-Cal provides hot showers, a hot meal and entertainment! While the camping is optional on both Friday and Saturday nights, how can you turn down an opportunity like that? Please join us in a great time and opportunity to give back to our parks.

News & Events

The Las Trampas project was ... hmmm... hot but terrific!

Although it started out with mild temperatures, it heated up quickly, so it was a good thing so many of the work sections were in the shade. Characterized by many different levels of technical complexity, volunteers put in steps, rerouted a section of trail, and made a steep difficult trail a lot safer for all users. Check out the facebook pictures!

With a fabulous paella and vegan corn chowder for dinner, this project was definitely one to remember.
