Join the effort to protect the city’s outdoor spaces
The Friends of the Wilderness Park is a grassroots organization that works with the city of Claremont to help preserve the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park as an environmental resource, manage the park for passive recreation, and minimize the impact of park attendance on surrounding residential neighborhoods.
The group will hold its annual meeting on Wednesday, May 1 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Santa Fe room of the Hughes Center, 1700 Danbury Rd., Claremont.
Learn more about the history of the park and the Friends group, as well as a variety of volunteer opportunities, including the Second Saturday Program where members greet visitors and pick up trash.
Several projects are ongoing, including signage improvement, invasive species management, trail improvement and maintenance. There are also opportunities to develop new activities, like outdoor education and outreach, and to shape the future direction of the group.
