Volunteer Day at Big Oak Canyon

VOLUNTEERS WELCOME! This is a great opportunity to see Big Oak Canyon and get your hands in the earth.

EARTHROOTS is honored to be working with OneOC at Big Oak Canyon, a 39 acre property at the foothills of the Santa Ana Moutains that Earthroots is purchasing this year.

Project: Disaster Preparedness & Environmental Stewardess

Volunteers will work with Earthroots staff and volunteers on their soon-to-be acquired outdoor educational acreage assisting with disaster Preparedness & environmental stewardship including clearing brush, invasive plant removal, orchard re-beautification as well as building an outdoor shade structure.

About Earthroots: A non-profit 501(c)3 education  organization dedicated to  cultivating a sense of care and connection between people and the natural world.  Earthroots inspires life-long dedication to environmental stewardship & community through deep nature connection mentoring.  In our creative learning environments, Earthroots participants gain a better understanding of how all of life is connected.  They experience how our actions influence the world around us. With this understanding, we hope that individuals then make choices in their daily lives to improve the health of the earth, themselves and each other.  For more information log onto
