Event description


Grove Guardians at Redwood Grove:

Join us at Redwood Grove this summer for a volunteer opportunity specifically for middle and high school aged students. We'll meet Thursday mornings from June to August to explore and enhance the ecology of California ecosystems. We will strengthen our naturalist skills while building community with one another. While it is not a requirement to attend each week, it is highly suggested to come as often as you can.

Waivers/Registration: All participants must register & approve the online waiver through this Eventbrite page. Youth under 18 must have their legal guardian approve the waiver on their behalf.

Parking: Park on University Avenue and walk down the driveway into the Preserve; there is no parking available in Redwood Grove.

Alternate Transportation: There is a bus stop at the corner of El Monte & University a couple blocks away from the entrance of the preserve. There are multiple Santa Clara Valley Transit Authority bus routes that arrive at this point. Here is a link to their bus schedule. If you'd prefer biking we have bike racks near the cottage in the preserve.

Meeting Place: We will meet by the cottage and the kiosk at the base of the driveway in the preserve.

Prepare for Working Outdoors:

  • Water bottle

  • Long pants, long sleeves recommended

  • Sturdy close-toed shoes that can get dirty

  • Hat/sunscreen or rain gear/boots

  • Plan for potential exposure to sun, poison oak, ticks

We will provide gloves, tools, and light snacks.

Grassroots Ecology encourages people from all identities and backgrounds to participate in our programs. Many of our programs are outdoors and involve moving and working in a variety of landscapes. If you have accessibility concerns (i.e., allergies, limited mobility, learning differences), our projects are flexible and we are happy to work with you. Please reach out to the workday facilitator so we can best prepare for your participation.
