Organization Profile

Ivan Dickson Volunteer Trail Maintenance Program


For more than 60 years, Mr. Ivan Dickson spent his free time hiking the trails of the East Bay Regional Park District. When Mr. Dickson died in February 1993 at the age of 95, he left both a request and a bequest to the East Bay Regional Park District to "take good care" of the trails that meant so much to him. By leveraging these funds for long-term growth, and by involving the public in a partnership dedicated to the preservation of trail resources through volunteer efforts, a perpetual trail maintenance program has been established to accommodate future generations of trail volunteers.
