OUR MISSION

We're dedicated to assisting the Forest Service and other resource management agencies in maintaining, protecting, and restoring the natural and cultural resources and the scenic beauty of our forest lands for the enjoyment and use of present and future generations. We are a solution-oriented volunteer group that works in partnership with these agencies to assist in tasks they do not have the staff or the funds to accomplish.


STATE OF THE ORGANIZATION 2019

The fiscal year ending September 2019 was another great year for your organization, FoNAF.  Many of our accomplishments have been featured in our newsletters that can be seen by clicking on "Newsletters" in the main banner above. Our activities this year have been more diverse than ever with a good mix of existing projects as well as several new endeavors, including the building of a new log worm fence to protect an important wetland and homestead cabin in Brolliar Park:

Here is a partial list of the projects we completed in 2019:

    • ·         Over 3900 total volunteer hours
    • ·         Built two new exclosures to protect aspen off Hwy. 180, in addition to our monitoring and maintenance of over 80 existing exclosures.
    • ·         Modified several miles of allotment fencing making them more pronghorn friendly.
    • ·         Supported the Forest Service’s “Preventative Search and Rescue” program on weekends at the Humphreys Summit Trailhead.
    • ·         Took on the repair of three important wildlife exclosures on the Mogollon Rim District.

It was another productive year for FoNAF and I'm proud of our many contributions. We are very pleased with the outstanding support of the Forest Service through the efforts of Mark Nabel, Cary Thompson, Patrick McGervy, Tom Runyon, Roger Joos, Gary Hayes, and many others. Tom also recognized the Arizona Game and Fish Department for use of their tools and vehicles
