Trash Cleanup Project Near Walnut Canyon - Forest Road 791 & Route 66

  • 35.217829, -111.529250 (map)

Natural Restorations is teaming with the Coconino National Forest on Saturday, July 16th, from 8 a.m. to Noon to remove trash and debris from the areas surrounding the Arizona Trail Passage 32a, off Forest Road 791 & Historic Route 66.  

Volunteers should wear long pants, sturdy closed toe shoes/boots, and bring thick work gloves. We also encourage volunteers to bring sunglasses and a hat. Real Purity donated Zinc Oxide sunscreen & herbal insect repellant for volunteers to use.

The Forest Service requires Personal Protective Equipment; this includes closed toe shoes/boots, gloves, and hard hats.

*If you do not have gloves or a hard hat, please let us know & we can reserve them with the Forest Service for you to use that day.

A responsible adult must accompany and supervise anyone under the age of 18 years old.

Scattered trash & debris in this area provide experiential education opportunities for youth, scout groups and families.

Join us for a morning of stewardship and hands-on service learning along a beautiful section of the Arizona Trail. Help us keep Arizona beautiful and have a fun morning with a great group of people.
