Arches National Park
Remove grafitti at five locations in Arches National Park and on BLM land near Arches National Park.
Graffiti has become an ever increasing problem along the many trails within Arches National Park and other public lands near Moab Utah. In an effort to build awareness and educate the public about this alarming concern, the National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, Friends of Arches and Canyonlands Parks and National Parks Conservation Association are teaming together to organize a Volunteer Graffiti Awareness Clean Up Day.
The event will begin at 9 a.m. at the Arches Visitor Center for a light breakfast and informational briefing. Then three clean up teams will be transported to the various sites where the graffiti is most prevalent. Water and snacks will be provided along with all the cleaning supplies. Volunteers will need to bring a lunch, sunscreen, water bottle and gloves. The event will last until approximately 4 p.m. This event will also be an opportunity to learn about the Friends of Arches and Canyonlands Parks group and how to become more involved. Please contact Britte Kirsch at (801) 521-0785 for more details and to learn how you can be a part of this important event.
