Delightful Volunteer Opportunity-Fort Ord National Public Lands Day October 26, 2019

We are often asked about volunteer cleanup/restoration opportunities on the former Fort Ord. There is a wonderful volunteer event scheduled.  It is our pleasure to let you know about Fort Ord National Public Lands Day on October 26, 2019. Please join us in celebrating National Public Lands Week.

The Fort Ord National Monument is all about conserving natural resources, enhancing and improving recreation opportunities, and honoring the military heritage of this special place. The National Public Lands Week event in October embraces those elements.

Saturday – October 26, 2019  MONUMENTAL GIVING: Join other volunteers on the Fort Ord National Monument and lend a hand in landscaping a trailhead, spreading straw on a restoration site, collecting native plant seed, controlling invasive weeds, or performing other rewarding work in a beautiful setting. Volunteers to the Saturday event will be treated to a free lunch courtesy of Fort Friends and entertainment following the work project.  Please register to volunteer at

Please wear closed-toe shoes and appropriate clothing for outdoor work.  Sorry, no dogs are allowed.
