Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The mission of the Volunteers for Outdoor Arizona (VOAz) is to involve all Arizonan's in environmental stewardship through participation in and support of outdoor volunteer work that preserves, protects, and enhances the public and protected land of Arizona.
VOAz promotes environmental stewardship. We partner with land managers to conduct on-the-ground stewardship events, including trail construction and maintenance, and habitat restoration. VOAz recruits, and manages the work under a written agreement with the land manager.
To get involved, go to our online calendar of upcoming events (click here). For most events you need some degree of mobility and eye-hand coordination. We provide any orientation and training you will need the morning of the event. We take special pride in helping volunteers build quality trails from their first trail event.
We also need people to help with event management and food service, which might suite you if you like to get out but don't want to do the manual trail/habitat work.
When you find an event that fits your schedule, click on "Sign Up"; you will be directed to create an account with your basic information (name & email) so that we can provide you the necessary information for that event. Additionally, this allows you to track your volunteer time and provides a quick reference for events at which you've participated. Future email communication will be used to notify you of other events, unless you opt out of this service. Please note: personal information is not shared with other entities.
