Volunteering while on vacation is not a new concept. Mission trips have long been a popular summer vacation activity for church and school groups. Today, the opportunities are stronger than ever, with new and exciting opportunities available for travelers to expand their horizons and give back to the community.

The Oak Creek Watershed is home to an abundance of natural resources that give travelers the opportunity to roll up their sleeves, learn about our unique eco-systems, and give back to the environment – all while enjoying a fun-filled vacation in Red Rock Country alongside beautiful Oak Creek.
