Friend of Friends Membership Program

Friends of the Verde River (Friends) envisions a healthy, flowing Verde River and tributaries that support our unique environment, vibrant economy, and quality of life for future generations. We work collaboratively to restore habitat, sustain flows, and promote community stewardship to support a healthy Verde River system.

The Verde River is one of Arizona’s few remaining flowing rivers. The river and its tributaries, such as Granite Creek, Sycamore Creek, Oak Creek, and Fossil Creek, provide lush corridors of life as they wind their way through beautiful, iconic, and arid landscapes. The Verde River system is an environmental and cultural treasure for local communities, the state of Arizona, and beyond.

Our membership program allows individuals, families, businesses, and organizations to support the vital work that Friends does on a continual basis in Verde River Watershed. We hope you will recognize the importance of this work and help Friends attain its goal of sustaining flows, restoring habitat, and promoting community stewardship by joining us as a Friend of Friends.
