Sandia Prep Clean

Students from Sandia Prep participate in an organized clean-up in August, 2011.

All volunteer clean-up projects must be officially coordinated and cleared with either the National Park Service or with the City of Albuquerque Open Space Division. This procedure will ensure that all projects comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and will also adequately protect the natural and cultural resources as well as the safety of all participants. For more information on this process please call one of the offices listed below.

As of November 2012, volunteer opportunities are either staffing the visitor center or trail patrol/watch. If you are interested in either of these opportunities, please call:
