Counting Bay checkerspot butterflies

Get Involved

Lead a wildflower walk, share your love of nature with our Junior Explorers, or help out in the Ed Center. If you enjoy gardening, consider working in the native garden, or joining our weekly Weed Warriors.

Interested in helping out a couple of hours every so often?

You can help prevent species extinction! Drop in on the Edgewood Weed Warriors and help re-establish the threatened Bay checkerspot butterfly, or protect plants found nowhere else. Or join the Road Warriors, cleaning up roadside debris to beautify I-280 right along Edgewood Park.

Got 3½ hours on a weekend?

Become an Education Center host (we’ll train you!) and share your enthusiasm for Edgewood Park with some of the thousands of folks who visit the Ed Center each year.

Willing to spend about 6 hours a few times a year?

Join the ranks of the Wildflower Walks Docents and inspire visitors to appreciate Edgewood’s springtime wonders. Or become a Junior Explorers Docent and bring the miracles of nature alive to young school kids. The Friends of Edgewood will provide all the training you need.

Have 4 hours per month to lend your expertise?

Come on board! The Friends of Edgewood Board of Directors or advising committees can use your talent. Help us fulfill our mission of protecting and celebrating Edgewood Park through stewardship and educational programs.

Looking for a fun project?

We are always looking for volunteer photographers, videographers, designers, writers, web developers, PC gurus, naturalists and native gardeners to help us with special projects. If you have a special skill or just a willingness to lend a helping hand, email your contact information and interest areas to
