Historicorps has scheduled three one-week volunteer events at
GYHS, Sept-Oct 2016!
They will be constructing roofs over two of our designated historic structures -- the Pennsylvania Cabin, and the Ohio Cabin!!!
They are accepting 9 volunteers per week. Volunteers will work from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks are included for each volunteer.
See their website for more information, and to sign-up!
The construction work, of course means, this year, we cannot have our annual fall event,
................"Women of Gilroy Hot Springs"................
That means we've RESCHEDULED it to Women's History Month, MAY 13TH, 2017.
Meanwhile, if you would like to become a docent volunteer, watch the Coe Park website for volunteer opportunities. Follow the "Support Coe" link to "Lend a hand" opportunities.
Guided tours continue

We had 2 Park Champions volunteer work days, Saturday, April 23, 2016 and Monday, July 18, 2016.
We cleared weeds on the roadway and tour path in preparation for the annual events.
We also did dirt removal beside the Ladies' Bath to deter further erosion to the building.
A limited number of volunteers were allowed (10 new, plus the veteran GYHS team), and we're looking forward to more opportunities to work with these fine individuals who share the passion for protecting and helping sustain our State parks!
