Find Your Opportunity

Opportunities to come out and lend a hand on Tam come in many forms, including helping to study wildlife, restoring habitats and trails, and other special ways that you can help support the mountain.

Opportunities include:

Contribute to research on Mt. Tam! Learn to identify different animals around the mountain captured by our motion sensitive cameras.

Spend time in the beautiful outdoors as you support our local biodiversity and get a little dirty! Activities may include removing invasive plants, planting, and occasional maintenance and trail work.

Peter Coyote Quote

The mountain gives to all of us selflessly and constantly. The challenge is for each of us to consider in what way we can repay the generosity. Invent something, donate, pull weeds, shore up trails, volunteer with One Tam and you will become a Tamalpaian.
