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, or your own two feet, opportunities abound for assisting us in our mission to improve the environments of Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons.

Want to get involved? Come to our New Volunteer Orientation on Wednesday, October 18th, 2017 from 6 PM to 8 PM at the Salt Lake City REI. Registration is REQUIRED. Please fill out this form to attend this informational event. Can’t attend but still want to help out? Fill out the form and let us know you can’t make it. We’ll send you a link to a video of the orientation and keep the communication lines open!
