Fishing in the City
South Bay Area

Volunteer!

We are constantly seeking individual volunteers to work at events and service clubs to sponsor events. Our programs operate through the time and kindness of volunteers. Fishing experience is not a requirement; all you need is a desire to help the community. We will train you!

To volunteer, contact Carrie Grisenti at Carrie.Grisenti@prk.sccgov.org or (408) 355-2240.

For information on having your service club sponsor a school or family program, please see the Parameters for Partners (PDF) and contact Ethan Rotman at Ethan.Rotman@wildlife.ca.gov or (415) 892-0460.
