DEDICATED RESTORATION TEAM

In February 2017, Natural Restorations launched our first Dedicated Restoration Team and began contracting Military Veterans. During our first 11 team projects, we removed more than 69 tons of trash and several panels of graffiti from the desert. Check out each project below and click HERE to watch a story from 12News about our Team.

Our Dedicated Restoration Team expands the impact of our vision by working throughout the year in areas that see repeated dumping, remote areas, areas too sensitive for a large number of volunteers, as well as graffiti removal projects.

There is so much more to our Dedicated Restoration Team than trash and graffiti removal. We provide support, socialization, and camaraderie to the Veterans on our team. We offer a community where individuals with similar experiences can engage with one another, building lifelong relationships, all while decompressing in the great outdoors. We are connecting Veterans with nature to offer moments of peace that are sometimes difficult to find.

We are proud of the work our Dedicated Restoration Team accomplished in 2017 through our OHV Area Restoration Project, a project funded in part by a Motorized Grant through the Off-Highway Vehicle Fund managed by Arizona State Parks Board. Through this grant, our Dedicated Restoration Team removed 69 tons of trash and 557 square feet of graffiti and we hosted 4 volunteer events, removing an additional 12.04 tons of trash.
