Volunteer for a Good Cause

Please volunteer to help keep Historic Fairview Cemetery clean and “green.” Every month, on the first Saturday of the month, volunteers come to the cemetery and wrangle weeds, pick up trash, spread mulch, and appreciate this local historical treasure. Sign up through this event link for Albuquerque’s Historic Fairview Cemetery Meetup Group!

We have plenty of mulch to spread around! It keeps the weeds in check, the sand in place, and greatly improves the look of the cemetery. Bring tools such as shovels, rakes, wheelbarrows and hoes. If you have a pickup truck, please let us use the truck bed to transport lots of mulch from the main pile to the plots where we want to place it.

Gardening/weeding is great exercise! Wear sunscreen, work gloves, a hat, long sleeves and sturdy shoes. Water, snacks and trash bags will be provided.

Thank you to our regular volunteers! Everyone is welcome to come at other times with your own tools to take care of any family plots or areas you are interested in. The cemetery is open during daylight hours.

Directions to find us in the cemetery: At 700 Yale Blvd. SE, enter through the gates of Fairview Memorial Park, near the intersection with Caesar Chavez Blvd. Drive straight ahead toward the cemetery office. At the intersection, turn left and head north into Historic Fairview Cemetery. It’s just to the left of the wall that says Congregation Albert Cemetery. Check in with Ed Sather at the Monument to the Unknown Dead.
