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.
