Volunteer Garden Club

Our Volunteer Coordinator, Jamie Fong, is leading our Community Volunteer Garden Club! This recurring project helps revitalize the Hellman-Ehrman Estate’s garden areas to resemble their historical appearance (c. 1903 – 1964), plant and maintain native flora that supports the park’s vibrant ecosystem, and elevate the beauty and richness of the park’s natural and cultural resources for all to enjoy.

The Volunteer Garden Club meets every Wednesday from 9 am to 11 am. Jamie and volunteers meet at the Sugar Pine Point State Park Visitor’s Center before walking together to the gardens. Free parking passes will be issued to volunteers each time they meet. Volunteers are encouraged to take advantage of the free day pass and bring a picnic to enjoy on the lakefront after the garden club!

Sign up for as many Volunteer Garden Club shifts as you would like here.

We encourage each volunteer to bring:
  • A pair of gardening gloves
  • Gardening tools (tools are available to borrow upon request, too!)
  • Close-toed shoes
  • A sun hat
  • Sunscreen
  • A resuable water bottle

We’re so excited about the special projects that we get to host this summer at our parks! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact volunteer@sierrastateparks.org
