Coldwater Canyon Park is open every day from 6:30 a.m. to dusk.
Our offices are open Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Our park has lots of wide, open hiking trails with beautiful views of the canyon and the San Fernando Valley. TreePeople offers a variety of themed and guided tours and hikes for you to choose from. We also offer Eco-tour field trips for schools!
We'd love to have you volunteer with us! To get started, take a look at our volunteer calendar of events and select an event that sounds interesting and works with your schedule. Once you are registered, we will email you a confirmation with directions and details for the event you chose.
We limit the amount of volunteers at each event so that everyone involved has a fun, fulfilling experience. If the event you would like to participate in is full, please check to see if we have space at another event. If not, please keep us in mind in the future.
If you're part of a group, organization, or business, we welcome you to volunteer at our tree plantings, tree care events, and mountain restorations! For group volunteering, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to find an event that can accommodate your group.
We could not do our work without the help of volunteer leaders who provide the instruction and inspiration to make our work successful. If you're a natural leader or you want to develop your leadership skills, this opportunity may be just for you.
Absolutely! Our Citizen Forestry Program teaches ordinary people the extraordinary skills of renewing the urban landscape by planting and caring for trees. For more than 40 years, these programs have been a vibrant model of civic engagement, bringing people together to make our cities more beautiful.
