Arizona has an abundance of volunteer opportunities that can be worked into whatever length of time you can give, be it one day or several, solo or with family and friends, in your local community or in the far reaches of our state.  This is a perfect opportunity to visit an area you have always wanted to see.

Environmental projects include clearing bufflegrass, repairing trails, improving wildlife watering stations, pulling down barbed wire fences, and citizen science projects such as bird banding or wildlife census.
