The Santa Catalina Volunteer Patrol (SCVP) is a volunteer "arm" of the USFS that operates in the Santa Catalina Ranger District of the Coronado National Forest in Southern Arizona. In other words, this is the bulk of the Santa Catalina Mountains north of Tucson. It sometimes seems that SCVP stands for "Sabino Canyon Volunteer Patrol" since that is where the bulk of the activity is, but SCVP people patrol all over the mountain, or at least they can if they want to. I became an SCVP patroller in early 2016.

Logging hours

Do this before you go out. Log into the website, and the first big sentence that exhorts you to log your hours is actually the link to do so (this has tripped me up, so I mention it here).
