Protecting water resources is a key step in supporting more resilient forests, especially as the climate warms. Join us as we work to restore the health of wetlands and streams that flow through beautiful northern Arizona ponderosa pine forests. These spring-fed streams are small but vital water sources that support plants and animals seldom found anywhere else in the forest.

We'll be working on a sometimes flowing, often dry stream section of the Coconino National Forest that has been impacted by drought and heavily grazed by livestock, elk, and deer, resulting in erosion, steep banks, loss of vegetation, and less surface water. On this trip, we will install rock structures in eroded areas to help slow and spread out the water flow. This will provide an opportunity for native plants to re-establish, support downstream water availability, and improve forest health even beyond the boundaries of our work.

At the end of the weekend, you will see the positive results of your efforts to improve an important water resource.

Accommodations

We will have a car camping base camp for four nights near our project site. The Trust will provide water, a full kitchen, and a groover toilet.

The Trust provides: All meals, snacks, field equipment, and tools.

Participants provide: Personal transportation to the site, individual camping gear, work clothes, wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, rain gear, and clothes for warm days and cool nights. Please come prepared.

About The Grand Canyon Trust

Location:

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.

Description

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.
