Improve Local Hiking Trails

If you’re a nature lover and a frequent hiker, then here is your chance to give back to the community. Come out and volunteer at the Eagle Peak Preserve, and help maintain these trails with brush removal, trail leveling, and erosion control.

This is a great way to gain some community service as well for your local organizations. RSVP: volunteer@sandiegoriver.org
