Why Become a Trail Steward?
Want to get some great exercise while enjoying the beauty of the Coachella Valley Preserve? Looking for an opportunity to improve the Preserve's trails and open space while making everyones' visit to the preserve more enjoyable? Then come spend a few hours with other volunteers and Preserve staff to learn what makes a good trail better, and begin putting that knowledge to great use.
