Volunteers and Partners Opportunities


Non-interactive thumb of one of our past volunteers Whether you volunteer one day a month or one day a year, your service to New Melones Lake and the visiting public can be enjoyable and rewarding. You can volunteer in our visitor center, help out on National Public Lands Day in the fall, or help with the C.A.S.T. (“Catch A Special Thrill”) fishing event in the fall.

 There are many other ways that partners can assist with the stewardship of New Melones Lake. Many areas have “Friends” groups that assist public land agencies with financial and volunteer support. In past years, there has been interest in the formation of an expanded “New Melones Partner” group to coordinate and finance projects such as:

  • Build, maintain platforms for osprey nests
  • Lead day hikes/walks
  • Plant oak saplings, native perennial grasses, and other vegetation management projects
  • Keep facilities and resources graffiti-free
  • Build, improve, and maintain trails
