Let us lend a hand to support North Coyote Valley Conservation Area!

About this Event

We hope you are excited to help us improve our newest open space: North Coyote Valley Conservation Area. As we begin management of North Coyote Valley, we will have a number of projects for volunteers to get involved with including but not limited to removing garbage, cleaning up graffiti, and pulling invasive weeds. We hope you are excited to visit and help out at this new open space!

The North Coyote Valley Conservation Area is our newest commitment to protecting critical wildlife habitat and watersheds for the residents of Santa Clara Valley. The North Coyote Valley Conservation Area is located off of Santa Teresa Avenue and includes a seasonal wetland and natural floodplain. We will provide specific driving and parking directions after registration. We will work with volunteers from 9 am to 1 pm.

The Open Space Authority provides all the necessary tools, safety equipment, and training for the day, as well as water, coffee, bagels and snacks (fruit and snack bars). To reduce plastic waste, we ask that you please bring your own water bottle to refill at our hydration station. We also have extra reusable water bottles to ensure participants stay hydrated.

The dress code for safety and comfort is sturdy close-toed shoes, long pants (no shorts, sweats, or tights), and long sleeved shirts (there may be thistle at the site). You may want to bring clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. Terrain may be difficult to navigate, so sturdy, supportive footwear is a must. Participants should also plan on bringing a hat and rain gear if we expect rain.

Please let us know if you have any issues with mobility, so that we can help make this an accessible and enjoyable experience. We welcome youth volunteers over 14 years of age with a parent or guardian. We cannot accommodate youth under 14 years old.
