Redwood National and State Parks – Latino Outdoors Volunteer Vacation 2022

July 17 - July 23

Trip Navigation

Join Latino Outdoors and American Hiking Society on this special project which offers the opportunity to learn more about Redwoods Rising, the largest restoration project of its kind in the country that aims to restore over 50,000 acres of second-growth forest into the old-growth redwood forests of the future. Participants will have an opportunity to roam over 50 miles of trails within Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, part of Redwood National and State Parks. We’ll lend a hand to the incredible trail crews that help maintain and build these trails while learning about the work it takes to support healthy redwood ecosystems.

This Volunteer Vacation is open to Latino Outdoors community members from the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Denver, Las Vegas, and Phoenix who have participated in outings and events led by Latino Outdoors in the past. A $300 travel stipend is available for each participant. Food and lodging is provided.

These parks make up 45 percent of all the old-growth redwood forest remaining in California.
