Friends of the Forest is a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting the U.S. Forest Service in the Sedona area. We provide more than 30,000 volunteer service hours annually to help maintain and protect the natural and cultural resources and the scenic beauty of the Coconino National Forest’s Red Rock Ranger District.
Friends of the Forest volunteers work in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, providing both teamwork and financial resources. Our local members have the opportunity to work on a wide range of special projects and ongoing activities, both indoors and out. Our volunteers provide visitor information, maintain and construct trails, protect cultural resources, eliminate graffiti, monitor trail conditions, and conduct numerous other activities that make a difference on our National Forest lands. To volunteer with Friends of the Forest, you must be a member.
Donations and dues finance our operating costs and many Forest Service essentials, such as interpretive signage, trail building materials, horse gates and native seeds. Whether you can help by becoming a member or by making a donation, you will be contributing to the preservation of one of the most beautiful places on earth. Thank you for your support!

In addition to membership dues, much of the funding we receive to support the U.S. Forest Service in the Sedona area comes from individual donations. These donations pay for physical improvements on national forest land, such as interpretive signage, trail building and repair, and information brochures. The U.S. Forest Service turns to Friends of the Forest when funds are unavailable for unanticipated or pressing needs.
Friends of the Forest, Inc. is recognized by the IRS as a tax-exempt charitable organization described in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Your tax deductible donation can assist us in meeting these unfunded needs.
