On the first of December, remember the San Pedro River and what it means to you! Then support the Friends with a generous donation to ensure advocacy remains strong for both good stewardship and river protection.
Learn more about the Water Sentinels and other volunteers of the Friends of the San Pedro River in the Sierra Vista Herald article Celebrating Volunteers. And join us, either as a volunteer or by attending one of our walks or other events!
Browse the new brochures on our website for information on the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area (SPRNCA), the Friends of the San Pedro River, the San Pedro House, the Fairbank Schoolhouse, and the Fairbank Historic Townsite.
The San Pedro River is Arizona’s last undammed river. Joe Cook and his colleagues at the Arizona Geological Survey recently mapped the extent of Holocene channel and floodplain alluvium there. This 122-mile map story from the US-Mexico Frontier to Winkelman, Arizona, shows you the San Pedro River Valley as seen through the eyes of a geologist.
The River_Roundup_Spring_2014 edition and Calendar of Events is out!
This edition includes articles about the President’s Award to Chris Long, in memory of volunteers who recently passed away, Clovis people, not to mention our recent film festival, the festival of arts, and Archaeology and Heritage Awareness Month Expo and history walks in March.
Today is one of the biggest events Arizona has ever seen and FSPR gets to be part of it. This isn’t just any event! With YOUR help, we can advocate for protection of the San Pedro River and promote good stewardship!
We need you to help us with these three things:
- Click this link to donate today: azgives.razoo.com/story/Friends-Of-The-San-Pedro-River.
- Make sure to Like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/fspraz!
- Finally, spread the word! Share our Facebook page, posts, and this email with your family and friends. Include a personal note as to why you believe in Friends of the San Pedro River and its mission and why we deserve your support on April 9.
With your assistance on Arizona Gives Day, we hope to raise more than $2,000 towards a wetlands restoration project! Follow us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/fspraz) so you can join in on this exciting day of giving!
With your support, we can advocate for river protection, provide the equivalent of over $200,000 worth of volunteer labor annually for interpretive educational and recreational events, and engage BLM and community leaders in support of good stewardship for the SPRNCA and the river.
Thank you for your support of the San Pedro River and the Friends!
