SLO Stewards Docent-Led Hikes

Join a SLO Stewards volunteer docent for a hike exploring the Open Space Natural Reserves of the City of San Luis Obispo.  Hikes take place 2-4 times each month, and vary on date, time and location.  Explore an Open Space you haven’t yet hiked, learn about local wildlife, and meet friendly faces.  Check out the current schedule.

SLO County Parks

Join ECOSLO and SLO County Parks for volutneer projects throughout San Luis Obispo County.  From trail maintenance to lake cleanups, we offer fun ways for your to care for your County Parks and enjoy the outdoors.  Volunteer opportunities typically take place once per month and we can also arrange for special group projects.  Contact us through the Volunteer Form for more information or check out the calendar.

Coastal Cleanup Day

Each year, on the third Saturday in September, ECOSLO hosts the Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day for San Luis Obispo County.  Over 1,000 volunteers join us for a community-wide cleanup of our beaches and waterways.  This is an especially crucial time for cleanup as it is after the busy summer months and before winter storms set in.  Volunteers not only cleanup the coast but also help us in tracking what debris is collected.  This is utilized locally and also becomes a part of an international report on Coastal Cleanup Day, put out by Ocean Conservancy each year. Learn more about this year’s cleanup.
