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,  and appreciate this local historical treasure. Sign up through this event link for Albuquerque’s Historic Fairview Cemetery Meetup Group!

Bring tools such as shovels, rakes, and hoes.  Wear sunscreen, work gloves, a hat, long sleeves, and hard sole shoes. Water, snacks, and trash bags will be provided. PortaPotties will be on site. The City’s Department of Solid Waste is providing a compactor truck to dispose of all waste material safely and expeditiously.

Thank you to our regular volunteers! Everyone is welcome to come at other times with their 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.  HFC staff will direct you to a designated parking area.
