Welcome to the new malibucreekstatepark.org!


Our philosophy is to give

We give a little time each month to help others appreciate the surroundings of the Park. Leading nature walks. Working with school groups. Staffing the Visitor Center. Building displays and exhibits. Recreating the history of the Park. Assisting in other interpretive programs. After the docent has completed the training program — and feels ready — there are a variety of activities to help with the visitor information program. A few hours of sharing … and years of receiving.


Public Programs

Conservation & Restoration

Operate the Visitor Center

Trail Cleanup

Continuing Education

Community Building


The Malibu Creek Docents association is a nonprofit volunteer organization serving as the park’s cheerleaders, teachers, and tour guides, helping park visitors with information, staffing visitor center, conducting nature hikes, guided Welcome Walks, assisting with Campfire Programs, Junior Ranger Programs, and scheduled school hikes. The docents act as park ambassadors, helping visitors with advice and sharing their knowledge with park visitors.


Minimum commitment is 4 hours volunteer time per month. Active docents will receive Continuing Education Naturalist training sessions, and MCSP annual parking pass. Additional volunteer time qualifies docents for district and statewide annual parking passes. The training includes class room sessions, hands on training, and hikes at the MCSP with a focus to learn about the trails, plants and animals as well as the rich human history of the park. The training is offered twice a year in Spring and Fall on weekend days over 6-weeks.
