The Verde Business Conservation program funds conservation, restoration, and education projects that help preserve, restore, or enhance the Verde River and its tributaries.
Project proposals are accepted from public land managers, local municipalities, or non-profit organizations. Once proposals are received, our advisory council chooses the best projects based on environmental impact, community involvement, and available funding. All funded projects are to be completed within a 12-month period. Verde Conservation projects include trail building and improvements, river access points maintenance, water conservation efforts, habitat restoration and improvements for river recreation, such as boating, fishing, and birding.
