The Mount Shasta Bioregional Ecology Center initiated the HOME (Honoring Our Mountain Environment) community stewardship program in 1997 in response to a proposal for day-use fees for visitors on Mount Shasta to fund rising maintenance costs. The program recruits stewardship volunteers from the community to assist the US Forest Service with maintenance and restoration activities and serve as ‘meadow interpreters’ to help protect the sensitive Panther Meadows area.

In 2017, the USFS was no longer able to support this program, except for the successful seed collection event in September.

This year, we are seeking volunteers who are mature, reliable, and willing to help where it is needed as we develop positive program goals and activities. Come help care for our beautiful natural areas to keep them beautiful and accessible to all!
