We are looking for volunteers to join the renovation and cleanup crew. We will do some renovation/restoration work and alot of ongoing cleanup work around the property. Each volunteer opportunity will be a half to full day of laboring at the hot springs with a lunch break. Tasks include raking, weed whacking, brush removal and other more skilled renovation tasks.
Our mission is to restore public access to the healing waters and extraordinary historical heritage of the Gilroy Yamato Hot Springs, a valued natural and cultural resource.
The goal of the Gilroy Hot Springs Conservancy is to restore public access to the healing waters and extraordinary historical heritage of the Gilroy Yamato Hot Springs, a valued natural and cultural resources. The San Francisco Bay Area currently has no public resource similar to this one, so the project is uniquely positioned to service an unmet need for the community. The most formidable task of the project will be to provide both a safe soaking and recreation environment, including the ongoing funding for the operation, while generating the funding required to fully restore the property over time.
This goal will be achieved by implementing a conservative five year plan, initially using volunteer power to restore and re-open key areas of the property that will solidify the financial basis of the project. Once these foundational goals are met and the basic concept proven, the partnership will be a springboard for generating resources for restoring, re-opening and staffing each section of the property, as the funding is generated. The ultimate goal of this partnership is to fully restore the property to its previous historical glory.
