We conserve land through restoration, education, and outreach.
We've partnered with Outdoor Adventure Quest to give our supporters an amazing outdoor experience enjoying all the public lands we work so hard to preserve. Go on their 3-day BUILD-YOUR-OWN Adventure Challenge December 8th-10th, and they'll donate 20% of ticket proceeds back to us! If you want to go the extra mile, make a team pact to collect as much trash as possible during your Quest!
Here's a quick overview of what Outdoor Adventure Quest is: Grab your friends or family and make a team of 2-6 people and get ready for adventures that'll take you across Arizona. Together you'll plan out your 3-day road trip to accomplish as many challenge tasks as you can. There are 500+ challenge tasks organized into 10 different categories: HIKE, MTB/BIKE, CAMP, CLIMB, OUTDOOR EDUCATION, OFF ROADING, PADDLING, EXTREME SPORTS, ALTERNATIVE OUTDOORSMAN & everyone's favorite....DRINKABLES (breweries, wineries & distilleries). Your team can start and end anywhere in AZ and you'll compete against teams all over the state; each team chooses their own activities. It's a great way to see the beautiful state we live in, do some trail clean up, and create some hilarious memories with your team. And did we mention all Questers receive a FREE AZ State Park Day Pass to go to any parks in AZ on their Quest!

Our Team works around the year 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 opportunities to Military Veterans.
Our Dedicated Restoration Team removed more than 65 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 9 projects for our Natural Restorations OHV Area Restoration Project funded by a grant from the OHV-Fund managed by the Arizona State Parks Board.

Some of the earth's greatest landscapes are in Arizona and are threatened by the long-standing issues of trash, illegal dumping, and graffiti in natural areas. We want these areas to remain open to the public for future generations, but we cannot achieve our goals alone.
