Working Together

volunteers at horse haven


Today’s partnerships in land stewardship reflect an expanding, and important trend. Many government agencies work in conjunction with private citizens and community organizations to improve and enhance Forest Resources and achieve social and economic objects. There are many opportunities for community members to work in partnership with the Cleveland National Forest and most find it very rewarding. Our partners help with education, outreach, recreation activities, restoration, land stewardship, research, technology, trail maintenance, OHV areas, stewardship, community service projects, youth and scout projects to mention only some of the possibilities.


Our partners include a number of federal agencies, tribes, State of California, local cities and counties, conservation organizations, universities, public entities and private citizens. Their assistance is provided through a number of avenues including various grants, partnerships, and volunteer efforts.


There are a number of ways that interested individuals can get involved: 

The Trabuco Ranger District will be on a temporary volunteer freeze, effective October 30, 2018 due to limited staffing resources. We will update this page as changes occur. You can also email the district for updates on the current status.
