Friends of the Forest is a nonprofit, nonpolitical organization, with membership open to all who are dedicated to maintaining, protecting, and restoring the scenic beauty of our National Forest lands in the Sedona area for the enjoyment and use of present and future generations.

By building a partnership with the Red Rock Ranger District of the Coconino National Forest, Friends of the Forest volunteers help fill the gap between needs and resources. We provide teamwork and financial resources to assist the Forest Service in its day-to-day operations.
Friends of the Forest provides the Red Rock Ranger District of the U.S. Forest Service with thousands of hours of volunteer services annually. Our primary goals are:

Help the Forest Service maintain its trails and cultural resources
Reduce the environmental damage caused by increasing human impact
Assist in education and improve communication with the community
Enhance the forest experience for visitors and residents alike

On Thursday, September 22 the Friends of the Forest (FOF) is hosting a new member welcome event at 360 Brewer Road in Sedona. FOF looks forward to seeing not only new members but also anyone interested in learning about and hopefully joining our organization.

Starting at 2:00 pm, Friends of the Forest will present short descriptions of the activities you can volunteer for: removing graffiti, maintaining or patrolling our trails, serving as a docent at one of the Cultural Heritage sites, assisting visitors at the Visitor Center, helping coordinate our public education programs, creating photo documentation of archaeological sites, providing River Ranger support, collecting water samples, maintaining a wilderness air quality monitoring station, or working on one of the many special projects in support of our local Wildlife Biologist. In short, there are opportunities for everyone.

If you are new to the area, you may not yet be aware that Friends of the Forest is sponsored by the National Forest Service. Our mission is to support the Red Rock Ranger District by providing resources to help accomplish critical tasks. We are the largest such volunteer organization in the country.

With visitation increasing every year, more and more stress is put on our natural resources. FOF helps relieve that stress, enhancing the natural experience for visitors and residents alike.

To help Friends of the Forest protect the natural beauty of Sedona and the Verde Valley, please join us at 2:00 pm on Thursday, September 22 at the Keep Sedona Beautiful building, 360 Brewer Road in Sedona. To learn more, visit
