We have partnered with the Del Norte County community since 2013, and previously in the 1990s. Since 2014 we have worked closely with the Tolowa Dunes Stewards to host full group work days removing invasive European beach grass and restoring habitat for native plants and animals. In 2022 we started partnering with the Redwood National & State Parks for an additional full group work day spending the day under the majestic redwoods.
Many of you know the Chiloquin community from our work there in the early 2000s and most recently in 2019. SSP has hosted over 2,500 volunteers in this community since 2004! Here are a few highlights about Chiloquin that make it such a special place to volunteer:
- We work with rural residents in and around the small town of Chiloquin, including some tribal community members
- Opportunities to engage in fire resilience work at Collier Memorial State Park with the Oregon State Parks, where we also relax for Water Day
- Close to sightseeing at Crater Lake National Park and Klamath Falls, OR
Based in Tsaile, we have partnered with the Tsaile Wheatfields and Lukachukai Chapters of the Navajo Nation since 2013, and previously in 2006 and 2009 although we have served with various Chapters in the Navajo Nation since 1994.
