South Rim Vegetation Work

Please join us on the South Rim to help assist Vegetation Program Staff with a unique restoration project for the 23rd celebration of National Public Lands Day!  Volunteers are needed to remove and dismantle wire cages enclosing the native vegetation planted around Bright Angel Trailhead and Lodge in the South Rim Village.  

Vegetation Program Staff will present an orientation to Grand Canyon National Park and its native vegetation communities while you are here. Come for a day at the South Rim and contribute to the health and beauty of the stunning Grand Canyon by protecting and preserving this invaluable natural resource for future generations!

We Provide – Entrance fee waiver, shared campsites for two nights at Mather Campground (see info below under "Housing"), all tools including eye protection and work gloves, and water during the work day. There is a limited amount of camping gear including tents and sleeping bags available from the park. If you need gear please call ahead to confirm availability.

You Provide – Food and snacks, personal camping gear including tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, headlamp, toiletries, personal items, clothing, closed toed work shoes, water bottles, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, daypack, and kitchen gear.

Comments – Average high temperatures on the South Rim are in the 70s or 60s and lows in the 40s or 30s. However, fall weather can be unpredictable so please come prepared for all weather (bring rain gear!).
