We know that behind SLO County Parks' successes lay the efforts of our volunteers. County Parks currently logs over 90,000 volunteer hours per year and this volunteer participation is absolutely crucial to the strength of our organization. Volunteers help to form the foundation of community representation in our work. This connection plays an integral role when striving to provide a high quality experience for all park visitors. Below are listed a large array of rewarding opportunities to volunteer through San Luis Obispo County Parks. If you're interested in any of the following activities please send us an email at SLOParks@co.slo.ca.us.
