  In May, Natural Restorations received a grant from Resolution Copper to remove graffiti in Devil’s Canyon and along Magma Mine Road. The Dedicated Restoration Team removed 498 square feet of graffiti for this project.

  They removed graffiti that could be seen from your vehicle driving through the canyon, graffiti you could see when you stopped at the pull-off areas, and graffiti in the canyon not visible from your vehicle. They also removed graffiti along Magma Mine Road.

  The Dedicated Restoration Team has removed 42,451 square feet of graffiti from rocks and boulders across Arizona. The team includes Nicole and Justin Corey, and three military veterans: Justin Ballard is a U.S. Air Force vet; Ryan Morin is a U.S. Army vet; and Garett Cline is a U.S. Navy vet. 

  Natural Restorations is an Arizona-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2015 by husband-and-wife team, Justin and Nicole Corey. They host volunteer events and contract military veterans for their Dedicated Restoration team. In addition to graffiti removal, they have removed over 1.5 million pounds of trash and replanted over 52,000 cacti, trees and plants in burn scars. They have provided over 16,200 hours of contract work in nature to the military veterans on their Dedicated Restoration Team across 130 projects and hosted over 100 volunteer events to get community members, including youth, involved.
