You Can Help!

The Umunhum Conservancy needs your help!  Check out the list below for some ideas!

If you have any questions, or would like to volunteer, email or call (408) 827-5150. Thanks!

Host Information Booths for the Conservancy!

Every weekend there are events in our community. Neighborhood festivals, farmers markets, street fairs, etc. The Conservancy should be at them all! Is your neighborhood having an event? We can provide you with everything you need … tables, banners, brochures, and information … to help spread the word in your neighborhood!

Hand Out Brochures

MidPeninsula Regional Open Space District has opened a fantastic new parking lot on Umunhum Road in the Sierra Azul Open Space. Eventually this will be the staging area for the new trail to the summit of Mt. Umunhum. Even now, on weekends this parking lot is busy with hikers and bikers. It has a commanding view of the Tower. Wouldn’t it be nice to let everyone using the lot know about the Tower?

We need a volunteer to visit the parking area on weekends and hand out Conservancy brochures.

Distribute Posters to Neighborhood Businesses

The Conservancy has some great posters to promote preserving the Tower. We would like to get them displayed in as many local businesses as possible! Restaurants, coffee shops, even your dentist’s office!

History Talks

Conservancy Director Basim Jaber has an amazing slideshow about the history of the Almaden Air Force Station atop Mt. Umunhum. He presents it for the general public regularly. (If you haven’t seen it … you really should!) He also presents it for private audiences … community groups, neighborhood associations, etc. If your organization would like to schedule a presentation, please contact Basim directly at

What’s YOUR idea?

As always … thank you for your help!
