BirchBark Runs the Human Race

Saturday, May 13th 8:00 am
2300 Delaware Ave. Santa Cruz
Run/Walk to Lighthouse Park & back

It's our 2nd year participating in the Human Race Santa Cruz. This year our goal is to raise $10,000 to grant the wishes of pet owners who need a financial assistance grant to treat their pet's life-threatening but fixable condition. You can help us by collecting pledges on your own or creating a team to raise funds for our cause.

It's that time of year again! Join BirchBark Foundation, the Coastal Watershed Council, and WoofPack831 for a community dog walk along the San Lorenzo River. 

The 3rd Sunday of May - September at 10:00AM, we will meet at the Gateway Plaza fitness area. The walk will loop across pedestrian street bridge, down the east side of the Riverwalk, through San Lorenzo Park and back up west side to the Plaza.

Mark your Calendars:

The first 20 walkers will receive a BirchBark Foundation portable pet food dish. 

Don't forget to start your WoofTrax when you walk! BirchBark will receive donations as our group of walkers grows.


We rely on the help of our wonderful volunteers to achieve our mission. These orientations will give us an opportunity to talk about the work we do at BirchBark Foundation, to meet one another, and to discuss the various roles and support work available for volunteers.
