Calabazas Creek Open Space Preserve is 1,290 acres, owned by Ag + Open Space, and was protected in 2004. People can visit this property by joining the Volunteer Patrol or by participating in one of our outings. This spectacular property is located in the heart of the Valley of the Moon and features a number of creeks, including Calabazas Creek. Public outings guide visitors as they enjoy the wildflowers, ferns, oaks, redwoods, and open grasslands that cover this diverse property. Trained volunteer patrollers regularly visit and care for the property.

Our volunteers are very valuable to us as they are the “eyes and ears” of Calabazas Creek Open Space Preserve. Joining the Volunteer Patrol is a great way for you to discover this beautiful place to hike while helping Ag + Open Space staff best manage and care for the natural resources on the property.

We require that all interested voluntees patrollers participate in an orientation. The orientation is three hours long and includes a 45 min overview of volunteer expectations and guidelines, background about the preserve, and checking out the maps and routes. The overview is followed by a 2-hour hike. The hike portion is optional, but not to be missed! Please share this invitation with any of your friends/family/colleagues who may be interested in hiking and helping out on the preserve.
