Welcome to Friends of the Forest Sedona

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.

Our Primary Goals:

    • Help Forest Service maintain its trails and cultural resources
    • Reduce 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

Stewardship and Fun! 

Friends of the Forest is a unique organization founded in 1994. As part of our partnership as stewards of National Forest lands in the Sedona area, we offer members many opportunities for personal enrichment and public service. We learn from each other, from Forest Service personnel, and from experts in wilderness skills, archeology, geology, flora, fauna and wildlife. 

Whether you can help by becoming a member or making a contribution, you will be directly helping to preserve one of the most beautiful natural resources in the country
