Open Space Stewards

Give back to the spaces you love! The mission of the Open Space Stewards Program is to promote the protection and management of legally-designated open spaces through environmental stewardship. Becoming an Open Space Steward involves about 8 hours of on-line training, followed by 20 hours per year hiking Flagstaff's open spaces and: talking with visitors about the open space property, cleaning up trash, removing graffiti, and reporting back any concerns. You may also participate in particular volunteer events, such as Wednesday Weed Pulls, trail repair days, clean-up days, or researching and providing information for self-guided hikes.  For more information and a volunteer application, visit https://flgcls.com/about..
