Volunteer Opportunities

We hope you will consider joining us for one of our volunteer days. We host UVTG Trail Work Days, Wild Gardening Wednesdays, Urban Greenways Days, and occasional other volunteer days.

UVTG Work Days: We meet at 9AM, work until about noon, take about a 45 minute lunch break then return to work until 2PM. We provide tools and lunch. We have spare gloves if you need them, but if you can bring your own it’s a big help. We also appreciate an RSVP as that makes it easier for us to be sure we have enough food. RSVP to: info@mendotrails.org or call 707-972-0926 

Wild Gardening Wednesdays: WGW is a joint UVTG CA Native Plant Society project to bring nature home and into our urban environment by fostering a native landscape throughout the City of Ukiah. Volunteers meet for an hour (or so) on Wednesdays at 4PM. Join the WGW email list to learn the week’s location! Email tworns@pacific.net to be added to the list.

Ukiah (Urban) Greenways Days: These days focus work on our urban trails inside our City limits, primarily on the Orr Creek Greenway and the Historic Railroad Parkway (Rail Trail).

UVTG Strike Force Six! We’re looking for the few, the hearty, the trail building savvy, free-to-work on Thursday afternoon folks who will join our Strike Force Six team to join us for down and dirty trail work sessions. We meet at 3PM on Thursdays. Contact Strike Force Six Commander Neil , (or call 707-467-3220) if you want to play.

Details for Workdays are posted on the Active Mendocino Calendar (Co-sponsored by UVTG and Walk & Bike Mendocino)
