What does it mean to volunteer for Race for Open Space?

As a volunteer for the Race for Open Space, you are creating something very special: a moment where people connect to themselves, to each other, and to the beauty of nature at Marks Ranch through their adventure across meadows and oak woodlands. The Race for Open Space would not be what it is without the kindness of volunteers who give their time to make it a success! When you volunteer for Big Sur Land Trust at the Race for Open Space, you are directly joining with us in our mission to inspire love of land across generations, conservation of our unique Monterey County landscapes, and access to outdoor experiences for all.
