Some happy hikers on a Canyoneer hike


Join a crew of hardy hikers and explore the coasts, foothills, mountains, desert, and local canyons. Training begins September 8. As a Canyoneer, you lead public groups on a nature walk sharing what you have learned in the Canyoneer training. You trod the wild side of San Diego County, areas that most residents never see. This is a weekend opportunity though there are school hikes during the week. Training is 8 consecutive Saturdays from September 9-November 17, 2018; 8 AM-3 PM. Graduation is November 18. Training materials are $25. Canyoneers are asked to lead six hikes per year for two years. The hiking season begins in September and ends in June. The hikes are free, no reservations required, and open to the public. This is a great way to meet others with a similar passion.

To apply, please go to the museum's website at sdnat.org/volunteer and complete a volunteer application. That is the first step in the process. You will be invited to a volunteer introduction to find out more about this opportunity.
