Welcome to the Glen Helen Association


Glen Helen is a member and visitor supported nonprofit organization. We need your help to continue the Glen's legacy and to preserve this special place for generations to come.


Amidst a backdrop of native trees, wildlife, and gently flowing spring waters, Glen Helen provides environmental education to children and adults. We are here today for you AND because of you, our members.


As a  501(c)(3) organization, Glen Helen depends on members like you for our programs and daily operations. Since we receive no government funding, your membership allows us to maintain more than 20 miles of trails, steward the fragile ecology of Glen Helen, offer educational programs for schoolchildren and the public, and preserve the meadows, forests, pine groves, talus slopes, prairies, and streams of Glen Helen. Your membership helps to maintain Glen Helen as a jewel of the community and helps us to continue to preserve and improve this rare 1000 acre green space.

Help us achieve our Mission!
