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!
