We want to extend our thanks to Nicole Shafer, Alyson Tarrant and Dr. Jacqualine Grant for volunteering their time as board members and helping to make so much progress possible in the development of the Cedar Canyon Nature Park these past few years.

Thank you Dr. Jacqualine Grant for providing such an interesting and informative lecture before the music began on Friday August 31 about Monarch butterflies, pollinators and the plants they need to survive and help our environment. Her knowledge and passion made for a great presentation and got us all excited to help the environment, each in our own way.

Thank you Tom Bennett, singer, songwriter & one man band to who provided a delightful evening of original music at our 3rd Campfire Concert in the Canyon on August 31. Jennifer Alger, Patrick Shannon and Susan Tyner for setup and cleanup for these programs and the Youth Volunteer Corp (YVC) for offering free face painting to the youth that attended the concert.

Rehabilitation Flight Chamber – Weathering Yard

We want to thank Simeon Amankwa from Boy Scout Troup 345 for building this flight chamber – weathering yard as part of an upgrade for the Southwest Wildlife Foundation rehabilitation facilities in Enoch. On July 21 & July 28 Simeon worked alongside 18 other scouts, church and community members who came together to help with this Eagle Scout Project.

We want to recognize and thank Sunroc Corporation for their donation of lumber and hardware for this project and also recognize and thank C-A-L Ranch Store for their donation of chicken wire and hardware for this project. Moms and sisters provided lunch for the volunteers and with teamwork this project was completed with just 2 days hard work.

Thank you so much.

Cedar Canyon Nature Park Trail Maintenance

We want to thank Boy Scouts and their leaders from the Cedar West Stake for pulling weeds along our trail between our two parking areas on July 21.

Thank you for your service! We appreciate you.

Video editing, YouTube Posts and Social Media Updates

We want to thank DG, our Volunteer Webgeek for all of her hard work to bring you updates on our wildlife rehabilitation and to promote educational awareness about wildlife and the environment we share with them. She understands the value of education which over time, will save more lives than all of our rehabilitation efforts.

Thank you DG, for editing our videos and sharing them with the world to benefit the critters. We truly appreciate your dedication and service.
