Summit Rock Call for Volunteers

After a long-standing closure, Santa Clara County Department of Parks and Recreation (“County Parks”) is now planning to re-open Summit Rock, a popular crag in the California Bay Area, to climbing through a permit-only system. In order to do this, County Parks is asking for volunteers to help monitor peregrine falcons and educate park visitors about falcon protection. Volunteers will need to attend training on falcon behavior, data collection, and radio usage. The park will be open from 8am to 4pm, Thursday through Sunday, to climbers who have obtained a permit. The future of climbing at Summit Rock depends on good volunteer participation, so we encourage local climbers to volunteer.

Contact Senior Ranger Flint Giles about the volunteer position! You can reach the park office at (408) 867-9959.
