More About Us

The Friends engage the local community to advocate for water conservation measures and for protection of the river, provide comments to BLM promoting good stewardship and sustainable management alternatives for the San Pedro Resource Management Plan, promote youth education through our interpretive walks, school visits, and videos on the return of beavers to the river, the function of cottonwoods in a healthy river system, and the hydrology of the river. Your support has made these accomplishments possible!

FSPR operates a gift and bookstore, leads guided interpretive walks/hikes along the river and throughout the adjacent area, presents educational programs to schools and community groups, and assists the BLM in a variety of other programs. Event information is published in the quarterly newsletter and on the website.
