Volunteer at Picture Canyon

Join us in one of our volunteer events at Picture Canyon Natural and Cultural Preserve

We will be removing invasive weeds and fencing from the Rio de Flag floodplain to improve function and wildlife habitat.

Please bring water, hiking boots or comfortable shoes that will hold up on rough surfaces, gloves, and sun protection (spf, hat, long sleeves, etc.).

Contact Erin O'Keefe, Open Space Aide VISTA, at EO' for more information.
