Broken Glass Cleanup along the Arizona Trail Florence-Kelvin Trailhead

Broken Glass Cleanup along the Arizona Trail Florence-Kelvin Trailhead

Natural Restorations is teaming with the Arizona State Land Department and Pinal County Trails and Open Spaces to remove the broken glass and debris along the AZT Florence-Kelvin Trailhead on Saturday, October 17, 2015, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.  

*Minimum age requirement for this event is 14 years old. A responsible adult must accompany and supervise anyone under the age of 18. There is scattered trash and debris in the areas surrounding the trail that will provide experiential education opportunities for youth, scout groups and families. Please contact Nicole at contact@naturalrestorations.org for more information on opportunities for youth to participate in this volunteer event.  

Volunteers should wear long pants, sturdy closed toe shoes/boots, and bring thick work gloves.  We also encourage volunteers to bring sunscreen and hats. If you have tools, such as landscape rakes, snow/square shovels and heavy-duty buckets bring them with you; they will help with the large piles of glass. 

Join us for a day of cleaning up broken glass piles and other debris spread throughout this beautiful section of the Arizona Trail. Help us keep Arizona beautiful and have a fun day along the AZT with a great group of people. 

For more details and to register, please contact Nicole at contact@naturalrestorations.org.

Directions to Site:

From Phoenix:  Take US 60 East to Superior. Take 177 South. Make a Right onto Kelvin Riverside Road, where the railroad tracks cross the road (sign is on the right, just after turn for Ray Mine). Follow the road, cross the 1-lane bridge, continue on the road as it goes from pavement to dirt. The road is easy access for cars, it is wide and nicely graded. After a couple of miles, you will see a small sign post on the right for the Arizona Trail, parking for the cleanup will be up the road on your left in a big dirt lot by the trailhead. Look for a Natural Restorations sign and red arrow. It takes about an hour to get there from the East Valley depending on traffic.
