Trail Crew (Stewardship)

Trail CrewThe Armstrong/Austin Creek Trail Crew has been assisting State Parks with trail maintenance, bridge building and other important projects since 1993. This active group, of men and women of all ages, comes together monthly to tackle stewardship projects in both Armstrong Redwoods and Austin Creek. Under the expert leadership of Laura Parent and Tyler Langwell, State Parks maintenance staff, this crew makes a huge contribution at Armstrong Redwoods. Stewards Field Operations Manager, Tom Webb coordinates projects in Austin Creek.  Volunteers may receive specialized training so they can operate restricted equipment, such as chain saws and drive state vehicles.

Bill Bambrick is the volunteer coordinator for the trail crew. He keeps volunteers updated on plans for each month and where to meet. 

The crew meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 9:00am at the park maintenance area. Their assignment for the day may be working in the grove repairing fences or cleaning up and ensuring the safety of the trails. Other days, they may take their lunches with them to the beautiful backcountry in Austin Creek for a day of trail maintenance. No matter how difficult the workday has been, the crew always comes back with smiles on their faces, eagerly looking forward to the next project.

There is also a trail crew that meets generally on the 4th Wednesday of the month on Sonoma Coast.

New volunteers are required to attend one of the three General Orientation Sessions offered during the year, however stewardship volunteers can sign-up for activities any time of the year and don't have to wait to attend an orientation before beginning to volunteer.
