Docent led hike header

Our projects and events would not happen without fantastic volunteer support. We can help you find a way to invest your time in the Sacramento Valley Conservancy’s outings and hikes on our beautiful properties.

Join our amazing group of trained volunteers to help with our docent led-activities at Deer Creek Hills and Camp Pollock. No experience is necessary, just a desire to learn about the land and to share your knowledge with the public, we provide the training.

We are always looking for volunteers to help lead or supplement the leader on our docent led-events:SVC - Docent Horse

  • Birding, botany, geology and more!
  • Equestrian Rides (must have your own horse)
  • Mountain Bike Rides
