Featured Volunteer Opportunities:

Oracle State Park Work Event - October 28
Come help REI with support from the ATA and Oracle State Park to preserve and maintain this important passage of the AZNST.

You can also contact one of the many trail stewards who oversee the Arizona Trail's 43 passages. They can always use experienced and non-experienced workers.
