Join us and help build a new section of the Bay Area Ridge Trail at Fernandez Ranch!
Volunteers for Outdoor California (V-O-Cal.org) and the Muir Heritage Land trust are hosting this volunteer trail building event on June 5 - 7.
Volunteers can choose to make this a one or two day activity, and are welcome to camp (free!) both Friday and Saturday nights. A continental breakfast will be served on Saturday morning, and Saturday evening there will be snacks, dinner, and entertainment. A hot breakfast on will be served on Sunday morning.
