It was great helping out in my own community. The park rangers and the community visiting were so appreciative of our help.

I work for the California Conservation Corps of San Diego, and my job requires 48 hours of volunteer time. I would like to volunteer for the Park and Recreation because my job deals a lot with the out doors, and i like working outside and helping to save the county of San Diego and the state of California.
