Become a Volunteer for the California State Parks

Have some time to volunteer? The California State Parks Sierra Gold Sector is looking for some great volunteers. Three local state parks, Empire Mine State Park, South Yuba River State Park and Malakoff Diggins State Park are looking for your help.

State Parks transitioned to a new Volunteer management system called “Better Impact” and your online application will serve as the basis for your profile within the system. Better Impact is the vehicle by which Volunteers log hours and show their contribution to their Programs and their Parks where they serve.

We are excited to now offer an online application for new potential Volunteers at:

At the bottom of the screen in the field provided applicants can type in any keyword relating to Empire Mine, Malakoff Diggins or South Yuba State Parks and they will then be brought to the State Parks Page where our application is linked.
