COVID Precautions

V-O-Cal puts safety first. Please remember that all participants are required to be vaccinated. Protocols will be used in connection with food preparation and service (kitchen crew will mask in confined areas and during food services), and social distancing in outdoor areas will be requested.

Project Background and Description

VOCal is excited to help restore the fire-ravaged Skyline Wilderness Park in Napa. Local volunteers have already donated over 1000 volunteer hours since the fires, removing several hundred dead or damaged trees and performing needed trail maintenance on compromised trails. We'll lend our many hands to perform additional restoration work.
We have three primary objectives: construct a reroute on upper Skyline Trail to avoid a muddy wet area, replace the burned decking and structure of a footbridge, and build a rock wall to replace a burned wood retaining wall on Skyline above Lake Marie. Skyline Park is a beautiful, green, remote park southeast of Napa which has dozens of miles of multi-use trails in steep and rugged terrain.

  • Reusable plate/bowl, eating utensils, and mug/cup.
  • A change of clothes for each work day and for lounging at camp to minimize the spread of poison oak.
