Stewardship, as we define it, is the careful and responsible management of our natural resources and State Parks lands. As an organization, Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods is managing the restoration of the Willow Creek Watershed as a stewardship project. The Willow Creek Watershed Education Program is one component of the larger Willow Creek Restoration and Management Project which enables us to teach school children to how they can practice good stewardship.
Budget and personnel constraints in our State Parks have created a great need for the general public to give of their time and energy to help in the management, monitoring, maintenance, preservation, protection and restoration of local State Parks' lands, watersheds, trails and wildlife. Stewards supports a number of "Volunteers in the Parks" (VIP) opportunities for those who wish to participate in these hands-on endeavors. Through your efforts, you can help preserve these treasures for many generations to come while enjoying the camaraderie of like-minded volunteers.
We encourage new volunteers entering one of the Stewardship Programs to attend one of the three General Orientations for New/Returning Volunteers training sessions and Education Seminars that cover their areas of interest. Most of our stewardship opportunities involve hands-on training in the field. Volunteers learn by working side-by-side with experienced State Parks volunteers. The number of hours of commitment vary.
