Pleasanton’s Alviso Adobe Community Park is a unique site that tells the story of California from its earliest human history. This fully restored interpretative park reveals the history of the Amador Valley, offering a rare glimpse of times past – from its Native American beginnings to the days of Spanish Ranchos managing herds of cattle on the original 12,000 acre Rancho Santa Rita, through a period in the early to mid-20th century when it was a popular dairy and finally its present as a community park.

Volunteers who are at least 16 years old can volunteer at Alviso Adobe to fulfill community service hours for high school graduation or other commitments. Volunteer shifts are scheduled during most Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 AM-12:30 PM and 1:00 PM-4:00 PM year round. Typically volunteers assist with maintaining native plant gardens, cleaning historic buildings, and helping staff prepare for environmental education programs.

Volunteer Groups and Docents are also needed.
