Neighborhood Park Ambassadors help to ensure their local park is clean safe, and green while assisting with future park programs and activities geared towards connecting parks with people and people with parks. For more information about the program please checkout our Park Ambassador Handbook.
Kiosk volunteers welcome visitors to Sycamore Grove Park, make changes as needed for the parking machine, sell annual parking passes, keep a tally of how many visitors enter the park, and answer questions from the public. Volunteers are trained to use a communications radio to advise rangers of any problems they become aware of. Ideal kiosk volunteers are folks who already have familiarity with Sycamore Grove Park and can commit to working at least one 2 to 4 hour shift most months of the year. Volunteers who can work multiple shifts a month are highly desired. Those interested in becoming kiosk volunteers will join a ranger for a one-to-two hour training session and then will join an experienced kiosk volunteer for their first few shifts.
After years in the making, the time is finally here to build the new stretch of trail behind Sycamore Grove Park. It's going to be spectacular!! V-O-Cal and Livermore Area Recreation and Park District are hosting two "pre-work" parties to prepare the trail in advance of the big trail building weekend on May 1 - 3. We need 30-40 volunteers for each pre-work party. Coffee, donuts, and lunch are provided. Please bring water and a sturdy pair of work gloves if you have them. Must be at least 18 years (age 14-17 okay with accompanying adult). To sign up or for more information please visit the link below.
This is the big one. Livermore Area Recreation and Park District and V-O-CAL are looking for 100+ volunteers to assist with building almost 2 miles of the newly names Patterson Ranch Trail at Sycamore Grove Park. There will be good food, camping at the ranger station (optional), and spectacular views while you work.
