free labor? why bother
Volunteering, it feels good.
While you may think of us Escapers, as off-roading tree huggers or health-nut hippies, we go well beyond that. As travelers we are as diverse as the California terrain. We have one thing in common, we all love the earth. That’s why we’re here! Give back a part – of yourself – to helping keep these forest, parks & trails open, healthy & protected.
Volunteer firefighter, CPR class, trail maintenance, or just helping out at the local Grange.
