A large and varied number of volunteer activities take place all year long at Edgewood as part of the Parks Department's Volunteer Program. Individuals, groups, families and organizations can take part in trail construction, exotic plant removal, habitat restoration, trail patrol and other beneficial and rewarding projects.

Edgewood Park and Natural Preserve also has an active and ongoing volunteer group, The Friends of Edgewood Natural Preserve. This group, organized in the early 1990s, is active in protecting and restoring the natural resources of Edgewood as well as providing visitor education and docent led tours.

If you are an individual or an organization interested in getting involved, please contact Edgewood Park or the San Mateo County Parks Volunteer Program.

Volunteer Horse Patrol

The Volunteer Horse Patrol (VHP) assists the San Mateo County Parks Department in providing safe and enjoyable trail use for park visitors. Volunteers observe and report trail use and conditions while riding horses within county parks, and inform and assist park visitors. Parks participating in this program include Edgewood Park in Redwood City, Huddart and Wunderlich Parks in Woodside, Pescadero Creek Park in LaHonda, and other county park lands where horses are allowed.
