VOAz Partner Agencies

VOAz Partners

Volunteers for Outdoor Arizona projects take place on city, county, state and federal lands and other protected lands managed by non-profit organizations know as land trusts. Through an initial joint planning process, VOAz staff and land Manager staff arrive at a plan for the work to be done and the estimated time period and number of events to complete the project. In some cases the plan defines an ongoing program involving one or more events per year working on special and recurring tasks needed to maintain or restore trails, habitat or facilities.
