Docent Training: January 12

Docents are the heart of SVC’s outdoor programs. Each year, they teach and inspire thousands of visitors through guided hikes, runs, equestrian rides, mountain biking tours, service projects, campouts, and much more. Whether you’re a returning lead docent or new to SVC and want to learn more about the program, please join us for this annual SVC Docent Training at Camp Pollock. All are welcome.

New Year. New You. New Trails!

Kick off the new year in your running shoes at Deer Creek Hills Preserve with SVC. Two new trails were recently marked (thanks to a generous grant from our friends at REI!) and are now open for trail running on Saturdays from 9am to 1pm, February through May. Bring a friend, your whole crew, or find your own pace solo among the rolling grassland and oak woodland. Be sure to pre-register.

equestrian ride

New Years Ride: January 5

Join SVC Docents to celebrate the new year on horse back at Deer Creek Hills Preserve. This ride is through open country over a variety of terrain on a working cattle ranch. Climbing and descending hills and creek crossing are involved and trail riding experience is highly recommended. Space is limited to 20 riders and spots will fill quickly. Riders must provide their own horse and helmet.


Want to make a difference and willing to get a little dirty? Join SVC Staff and Docents on select Saturdays each month (no longer every Saturday) from 9am to 1pm to improve Sacramento’s historic Camp Pollock. Volunteers are critical to help accomplish much-needed maintenance, landscape and improvement projects on the 11-acre property. Volunteer groups are welcome.
