Friends of the Tonto National Forest
Friends of the Tonto National Forest is a group of volunteers who assist the Forest Service in its mission of natural and cultural resource management. We promote public understanding of the Tonto National Forest’s policies, programs and projects through community outreach, projects and outings. Recent projects include planting native milkweed as a part of the monarch butterfly migratory waystation program, adoption of Sears-Kay Ruin interpretive site on the Cave Creek Ranger District, mapping and removal of invasive plant species, and taking repeat photography of over 800 streamside sites. This last project is a 35-year program begun by the Tonto National Forest and now managed by Friends of the Tonto. Change over time at some of these sites can be remarkable. Check out our website to use the interactive map of streamside photo sequences, and to access our calendar of events.
