Glen Helen is a not-for-profit organization that receives no taxpayer dollars to conserve, restore and manage 1000 acres of habitat; protecting acres of National Natural Landmark, groundwater resources, native wildflowers, and wildlife.


Our efforts are supported by Glen Helen Association Memberships, visitor donations and program fees. Financial support is also received through tax-deductible donations to the Glen Helen Association, the purchase of specialty license plates, community support programs, and public and private grants.


Programs, activities, and the Glen's future depend on active participation by volunteers, the continuing support of membership,

and the generosity of donors like you.
