Sabino Canyon Recreational Area in the Coronado National Forest
has been impacted by the government shutdown
yet remains open to the public with 
the help of volunteer organizations,
Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN) 
and the Santa Catalina Volunteer Patrol (SCVP)
continuing to provide their services to the public.

One of the programs provided by the SCVN is daily
environmental education programs for k-6 students.

Each August teachers reserved a date to bring their class
to the Canyon starting in October.

Because of the shutdown, the Forest Service agreed
to make sure all trash is removed and 
the restrooms are clean
in the areas where the environmental education programs are taking place.

This past Thursday’s program was “Back To the Past.”
Students learned
about the nature Americans
who lived in Sabino Canyon hundreds of years ago.

who reflect this nation’s compassion, unselfish caring, patience,
and just plain loving one another.”
