Foothills Nature Preserve

Join Us at Foothills Nature Preserve!

In partnership with the City of Palo Alto, the Environmental Volunteers “Trail Ambassador Program” provides volunteer-led engagement of Foothills Nature Preserve visitors – expanding their knowledge and sparking interest in the park as well as providing helpful information and resources. You can find our volunteers at Foothills Nature Preserve every Saturday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, and Sunday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm when volunteers are available (with exceptions for holidays). You can visit us at our nature-discovery table at Boronda Lake, or see us out on the trails. We look forward to getting you excited about the wonderful ecology there!
Information on Foothills Nature Preserve can be found on the official City of Palo Alto website – click here.
