About Friends of the Agua Fria National Monument
Friends of the Agua Fria National Monument treasure the monument and want to be sure that its important and sensitive resources are sufficiently protected. In these days of limited funding and resources, the group plays an important role in assisting the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) with critical support for monument activities. They organize outings and perform service projects on the monument, such as monitoring trails and cultural resources, removing non-native plant species, performing trash pickups, and recording rock art. They also act as stewards and advocates for the monument, working to ensure that it receives the highest level of protection possible.
