The non-profit, Association of Universal Philosophy’s church to God is about 1.5 hours drive from Oro Valley, AZ, north of Winkelman, AZ, off of Highway 77. The sign out front on E. Dripping Springs Road says, “All faiths welcome.” The building has not been used much in the past few years because of failing health of a minister. So it needs some TLC to get it ready for services again. Some is simple yardwork. Other is maintenance or repair.
Whatever you’d like to do, the senior minister will really appreciate your volunteer help! Every improvement made is progress in the right direction. It will be so wonderful to see the church to God kept up again, like a welcoming little chapel in the country.
If you want to help or to ask more about it, please call Rev. Judy, 520-742-0911.

Desert Restoration Several Eagle Scout projects have been carried out on a desert restoration site on the northern flank of the Waterman Mountains on Ironwood Forest National Monument. Currently there is a need for several themes that could all or some be taken on by an Eagle Candidate. GPS Mapping : We have seeded thousands of desert trees on this 18 acre site. But there are several areas that do not have trees and need to be seeded again. Scouts using GPS trackers could inventory trees and the bare areas would show up on maps. Desert Tree Seed Harvest and Seed Ball Making. In July and early August the Foothill Palo Verde and Ironwood Trees can be harvested for seed. Those seeds can be rolled into clay seedballs to resist rodent predation after planting. Desert Tree Seeding. In September the tree seed balls need to be planted in the areas where trees are needed and will be clear on the maps.
The Waterman Restoration site is exactly 19 miles west of I-10 to the south of Avra Valley Road.
