Over 1,250 miles of trails across 73 parks, East Bay Regional Parks are the go to for outdoor recreation in the San Francisco area. The park provides the terrain for lots of activities including hiking, boating, picnicking, horseback riding, camping, fishing and more. Due to the park being so highly utilized, there has been a massive backlog of trail restoration. This is where the East Bay Regional Park Corps come in. The SCA trail crew will work with the East Bay Regional Park District staff on a variety of trail projects throughout the Park District. Projects may vary widely in location and scope. They may include, but not limited to:

·       Trail maintenance (tread and drainage)

·       Social trail restoration

·       Installation of erosion structures

·       Clearing of trail corridor

·       Reset slope for water run off

·       And more

Project work will be physical in nature and demanding. Crew will have to hike uneven terrain, carry a heavy pack and tools, and work in the elements. Candidates must be looking for a new adventure, want to be part of a team, adaptable in any situation, and have a positive mindset.
