Nominating Organization:  OC Parks

Honoree Category:  Animals & Environment

Why Nominated:  SHARE Mountain Bike Club of Orange County was formed in the late 1980s and began volunteering in OC Parks soon afterward. For nearly 30 years, members have offered their time and service on OC Parks trails at O’Neill Regional Park, Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park, and many other parks in our system. SHARE puts a positive light to the sport of mountain biking when its members demonstrate combining volunteer time, compatible land-use, and public-service work. Each year at Canyon Clean Up, SHARE team members arrive at the worksite in Holy Jim Canyon and energetically clear out trash and debris from the area, preventing contamination in the creek bed. The SHARE Poker Ride at Whiting Ranch is held each year with members offering support along the course and at check-in stations; raising funds for a worthwhile and deserving charitable organization. In all of these ways SHARE displays going “above and beyond” while volunteering for OC Parks.
