We conserve land through action, impact, and education.
Our mission is to remove trash, graffiti, & anything foreign to the environment from outdoor recreation & wilderness areas across Arizona while enriching the lives of Military Veterans & other community members. We accomplish our mission by hosting volunteer cleanup events throughout the year for community members, including youth volunteers, and we manage & support a Dedicated Restoration Team with contracted Military Veterans who conduct restorations beyond the reach of most volunteers.
We have removed more than half a million pounds (259 tons) of trash from outdoor recreation and wilderness areas across Arizona & over 7,720 square feet of graffiti removed from rocks and boulders.
Our vision is to keep natural areas clean and open to the public for everyone to enjoy. we have removed more than half a million pounds of trash from natural areas!
Our Team works in areas that see repeated dumping, areas too remote or unsafe for volunteers, areas too sensitive for a large number of volunteers, as well as graffiti removal. Our Dedicated Restoration Team expands the impact of our vision, and also provides contract work opportunities to Military Veterans.
Our Dedicated Restoration Team removed more than 69 tons of trash and several panels of graffiti from OHV Areas in the Tonto National Forest - Mesa Ranger District and the Coconino National Forest during our first 11 projects for our Natural Restorations OHV Area Restoration Project funded by a grant from the OHV-Fund managed by the Arizona State Parks Board. In December 2018, our team was back in the field through a grant from ON Semiconductor. We removed 3,704 square feet of graffiti from the Lower Salt River at Water Users and Phon D Sutton, and at Saguaro Lake Marina Trail & Cliffs. We also removed 3,620 pounds of trash from locations all along the Lower Salt River. To learn more, click HERE.
