Youth Service Opportunities
Both Marian Bear Memorial Park and Rose Canyon Open Space Park have benefited from service projects, especially youth service. These projects offer a fantastic opportunity for young (and older!) people to make a long-lasting difference in their communities.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or the Tri-canyon Ranger office at (858) 581-9961 if you would like to develop a service project for the Rose Creek Watershed. Our thanks to past, current and future leaders in action for making a difference in your community!
