Nature needs your help -- we won't have nature to photograph if it is destroyed by litter and abusive use of the land.


How this Organization Started and Where it's Headed

Recently, I visited several wilderness areas in Arizona where trash and litter were abundant, including most recently the Tres Rios Wetlands. Having seen enough, I decided to do something about it! I started by cleaning some of these areas myself, with the help of a few friends. Then, I decided to do more.


I posted a request to Facebook, asking for volunteers if I helped coordinate a clean-up effort at Tres Rios. In just four days, almost 50 people and two organizations responded with an offer to help!


Inspired and moved by the offering of support, I reached out to the City of Phoenix Water Services Department and Arizona Game and Fish Department, both of whom own different areas of Tres Rios Wetlands. After several calls and meetings where I gave details about our resources, volunteer interest, and intent -- we have received permission, support (and a huge "THANK YOU") from the City of Phoenix (and I am still working with Arizona Game and Fish). We can now go ahead with the effort!
