This project takes place over three separate day-trips (8am-5pm). You can sign up for one through the links below:

The Four Forest Restoration Initiative covers 2.4 million acres of ponderosa pine forest across northern Arizona, from the Grand Canyon to New Mexico. Through this initiative, the U.S. Forest Service, the Trust, and many partners are working to reduce the risk of severe wildfire and improve the health of our forests. Rivers, streams, and springs are vital to healthy forests.

Springs are among the most biologically diverse, yet most threatened, natural areas on earth. In the arid Southwest, these rare pockets of water allow unique plants to grow, bobcats to drink, and birds to feed. Understanding the health of springs can better inform management decisions that support the entire ecosystem.

During each day-trip, we will visit one to four springs to document location, condition, wildlife use, and presence of grazing infrastructure. The data you collect will help inform spring restoration priorities. After completing the training on this trip, you will be ready to continue surveying springs on your own.

Vehicles will be nearby, but plan to be without cell service or amenities for the day.

The Trust provides: Water, snacks, field equipment, and tools.

Participants provide: Personal transportation, field-appropriate clothing, wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, and rain gear. Please come prepared.

About The Grand Canyon Trust


2601 N. Fort Valley Rd., Flagstaff, AZ 86001, US

Mission Statement

To safeguard the wonders of the Grand Canyon and the Colorado Plateau, while supporting the rights of its Native peoples.


We envision a Grand Canyon and Colorado Plateau where:

  • Wildness, the diversity of native plants and animals, clean air, and flowing rivers abound.
  • Sovereign tribal nations thrive.
  • A livable climate endures.
  • People passionately work to protect the region they love for future generations.
Volunteers are at the heart of what we aim to do - protect and restore the Colorado Plateau. Each year, hundreds of volunteers help us survey springs, plant native grasses, and document grazing impacts. Sometimes we pull weeds, other times we collect data, but thanks to our volunteers, we always bring passion and laughter to the task at hand.

Whether you’re an artist, academic, entrepreneur, or unemployed, we want you! The Grand Canyon Trust offers a variety of trips and volunteer opportunities to fit your lifestyle, interests, and skills. Trips usually run from April-September and are between one and five days long.
