Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons need your help

We have the most fantastic team of volunteers, but we need your help. Volunteers are the backbone of the Cottonwood Canyons Foundation, leading wildflower walks during the festival, guiding students through a winter wonderland while on snowshoes for the first time, and getting dirty while digging out stubborn invasive plants during a weed pull.

Throughout the year, we need your help. Whether it be on snowshoes, skis, snowboard, your own two feet, opportunities abound for assisting us in getting closer to our mission of improving the environments of Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons.

Check out some of the current opportunities we have listed on the below. If you have questions, are interested or do not see anything that matches your interest, feel free to shoot us an email! (volunteer@cottonwoodcanyons.org)
