Volunteer! Community involvement is essential to the Council’s restoration efforts. Landowner participants and on-the-ground volunteers are needed. The Council hosts AmeriCorps Watershed Stewards Project members, a special program of the California Conservation Corps, who gain professional experience in a variety of restoration work.
