Monthly Trail Clean-up Events:

City of Carlsbad is seeking volunteers to help with their monthly trail clean up events.

 Events take place on Saturdays from 8:30 to 11:30 am.

The city will provide a work plan and safety training at the start of each trail work event along with tools, water and snacks.  Please wear closed-toe shoes, gloves, sunscreen and a hat. In the event of rain, trail work will be cancelled.

Trail work locations are subject to change. To sign-up to volunteer or for event details, please contact Carly Davis at

Community Service

Requirements, Ideas, and Form

All CUSD high school students are required to complete a minimum of 20 hours of community service as stated in Board Policy 5122 as a graduation requirement. Students may begin completing community service hours during the summer after 8th grade promotion. Community service forms can be printed from the link below or picked up in the Registrar’s Office. When hours are completed, return the form to the Registrar’s Office with an attached business card or a letter from the service organization on their letterhead. Your hours will then be recorded.

Community service can be completed by working without pay for a non-profit organization that benefits your fellow man, the environment, or the animal kingdom. If you are paid for a service, it is not considered community service.  Fundraising for a team is also not considered community service.
