Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Do you love being around horses? Have you always wanted to volunteer at a working Ranch? Are you a hard worker who doesn't mind getting a little dust on your boots? We are looking for dedicated and committed volunteers to help us with our programs and work around the ranch keeping the grounds beautiful. After volunteers have attained 20 hours, they receive a ranch t-shirt and all classes taken are offered at discounted prices "25% as continuing Volunteers" !!!! You are also eligible to participate in our annual parades and camping trips at discounted rates!
CURRENT VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES ARE AS FOLLOWS:
SUMMER ADVENTURES & HORSEMANSHIP - Monday thru Friday (Summer) 7am to 9:30am Summer Adventures Camps for kids 5 to 13. The current need is for horse leaders, side-walkers and individuals to assist students groom & tack (experience preferred but NOT necessary).
