Ramsey Canyon Preserve Volunteering

High canyon walls create a cool environment for hummingbirds, mountain lions and canyon tree frogs.

Regular Basis Volunteering: The Nature Conservancy's Upper San Pedro Program based at Ramsey Canyon Preserve has an active volunteer program. If you are interested in volunteering on a regular basis and you live in the area, this program needs you! Consider volunteering on a weekly basis. Current ways to volunteer include: greeting preserve visitors; working outdoors on restoration, invasive species, and fuel reductions/fire management projects; selling items in our gift store; removing trash; and working outdoors in maintenance projects such as painting, plumbing, and electrical work.

You will gain many rewarding experiences, such as: meeting new friends, a general orientation to The Nature Conservancy, natural history training, on the job training, social events, field trips, and on-going natural history education training. Initial raining usually takes place during the spring and fall seasons. Training materials are offered. For more information about volunteer opportunities at Ramsey Canyon Preserve, call Eric Andersen, (520) 378-2785,

Restoration Work Days: Call ahead for time and details, Eric Andersen, (520) 378-2785,
