Gila Trout Stocking Volunteer Opportunity

October 27, 2021

The Arizona Game and Fish Department’s Native Trout and Chub program will be stocking 250 Gila Trout in Frye Creek, and 500 Gila Trout into lower Marijilda Creek on Mount Graham on Oct. 27. The stocking of Lower Marijilda Creek will be the most physically demanding, requiring a ~4 mi hike one way to get to the stream, while carrying a 5 gallon bucket ½ full of water and fish (~40 lbs) up Mount Graham. The stocking of Frye Creek will be significantly easier, requiring a ~2 mile hike one way to get to the section of stream that will be stocked while carrying the same amount of weight. Both Streams will require a vehicle with high clearance and four wheel drive to reach the trailheads. We are looking for folks to help us complete both of these stockings. If you would like to help out with one of these stockings please email Zach Beard at zbeard@azgfd.gov by October 15th with which stocking you would like to help with. Spots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis and space is limited. You will be required to follow all Department and CDC protocols related to COVID.

If you have any questions please contact Zach Beard at zbeard@azgfd.gov!

Natural Restorations

CLICK HERE for upcoming events

Our mission is to remove trash, graffiti, & anything foreign to the environment from outdoor recreation & wilderness areas across Arizona while enriching the lives of Military Veterans & other community members. We accomplish our mission by hosting volunteer cleanup events throughout the year for community members, including youth volunteers, and we manage & support a Dedicated Restoration Team with contracted Military Veterans who conduct restorations beyond the reach of most volunteers.

We have removed more than half a million pounds (over 314 tons) of trash from outdoor recreation and wilderness areas across Arizona & over 7,720 square feet of graffiti removed from rocks and boulders.

OUR VISION IS TO KEEP NATURAL AREAS CLEAN AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC FOR EVERYONE TO ENJOY. WE HAVE REMOVED MORE THAN HALF A MILLION POUNDS OF TRASH FROM NATURAL AREAS!
