The Friends of the Agua Fria National Monument and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management are seeking volunteers for the 5th annual wet/dry mapping of the Upper Agua Fria River on the monument.
Training for the mapping takes place from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, May 31 at the Black Canyon Heritage Park visitors center in Black Canyon City. Volunteers will learn how to use GPS units to map wet and dry sections of the river during one of the driest days of the year on June 16.
