Join a dedicated group of Volunteer Naturalists for the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority (MRCA). You’ll receive training and volunteer opportunities, including leading free 2-hour educational nature hikes for school children, hosting the nature center, and more.
Volunteering in nature is a great way to learn about plants, animals, history and culture, meet people with similar interests, and share your knowledge and enthusiasm with park visitors! Our Volunteers are a vital and valued resource, whom we acknowledge throughout the year with various special events, newsletters, field trips, continued training and more! We welcome you to join us and get out on the trails. It’s all waiting for you right here in the Santa Monica Mountains.
