Do you have the right stuff?

It's time again to promote the various volunteer organizations whose members do great work in the Santa Catalinas. If you like being outside and want to make a difference locally, there are a number of groups that would be delighted to take you in. And then take you out (but in a good way)!

Search and Rescue Council, Inc. (SARCI) coordinates all six of the local search and rescue groups, including the Southern Arizona Rescue Association (SARA).
Prospective candidate orientation meeting scheduled for August 9th, 2012, 7:30 PM at the Sabino SARA house located at 5990 N. Sabino Canyon Road. Attendance is a mandatory first step in joining SARA. 
Six local search and rescue groups, you say?! Yes, dogs and divers, horses and helicopters. Check out the SARCI site for more info and contacts. Or better, go to the prospective candidate meeting above.

Santa Catalina Volunteer Patrol (SCVP) You see us in Forest Service green (you know the color), patrolling in Sabino Canyon and on Mt Lemmon (mainly); also in Ventana Canyon and other places in the Santa Catalinas.

Sabino Canyon Bicycle Patrol Same uniform as above, but with the addition of a bicycle. No need to cycle up to Mt Lemmon, either. Whew.

Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN) We do school programs for kindergarten and elementary students; public programs for all ages. (New website coming soon.)

See you on the outside!
