There is no cost to participate in this event. Free camping is available.                                                 

Fun and Play:

If there was ever a year to visit the Sierra this is it! This year’s showcase of wildflowers will be breathtaking. Grab your camera and invite your family and friends to join you on what will be a truly memorable and rewarding volunteer weekend. After working through the afternoon, volunteers can enjoy a picnic along the Kaweah River or explore fields of wildflowers. Also, as a way of expressing our appreciation, volunteers will have access to free camping. Staying over night will provide you with time for some magnificent hikes to points of interest such as Tokopah Falls. The falls will be roaring this year!
