Pickin’ Up in the Pines 2021

May 26th and September 15th

The Coconino National Forest, National Forest Foundation, Oak Creek Watershed Council, and the Arizona Dept. of Environmental Quality invite you to Pickin’ Up in the Pines!  Join us to clean up camping areas in the forests that are the headwaters of Oak Creek canyon. 

In advance of major holiday weekends, get outside, clean up trash, protect downstream waters, and celebrate summer! We hope you will join us in working together, boots on the ground, to restore heavily littered areas to protect our watershed. Thanks to the Sedona Chamber of Commerce for supporting stewardship and Voluntourism efforts and for making events like this possible!

Event registration required! This event is limited to 30 volunteers. Face covering required.

When: May 26th and September 15th, 9AM-12:00PM

Where: Dispersed camping sites along the 89A outside of Flagstaff, AZ. We will email event registrants directions to the meeting location on FR 237 before the event.
