Help with Events

From event planning committees to course marking, working at the event itself on registration, aid stations, food stations, parking, etc., we are looking for dedicated individuals who have time to give to save the mountain.

Help in the Office

Lead a Hike

Save Mount Diablo leads fun and informative hikes on the Mountain, at all levels of intensity, in the Spring and Fall. This is a great way to meet new people who share an interest in Mount Diablo. Many participants share their knowledge of the diverse wildflowers, birds, trees and geological features of the Mountain. At the same time, hike leaders educate hike participants about new and potential additions to the State and Regional Parks, as well as regional planning issues. If you are an experienced hiker and would like to learn how to lead hikes, we’ll provide training. Call George Phillips at (925) 947-3535 or check the hike schedule for the next Hike Leader Workshop. 

Restore Lands with DiRT (Diablo Restoration Team)

Members of our all-volunteer Stewardship Committee care for Save Mount Diablo acquisitions, from the smallest (a few acres) to the largest (several hundred acres).  For some larger projects, we invite volunteers to come out and help. Please see our DiRT section to learn more and get your hands dirty.
