The Friends of San Pedro Valley Park is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization (a 501(c)(3) public benefit corporation) founded in 1985 that is funded 100% by membership dues, donations and sales proceeds.
We are a diverse group of individuals brought together by our love of nature and our concern for the park. Working for the benefit of all users of San Pedro Valley Park, the Friends play a significant role in supporting the park staff in their activities and in interpreting the park’s resources to the public. Perhaps you have seen us staffing the Visitor Center, visited our well-stocked Trailside Store, browsed in our reference library, read our bi-monthly newsletter, or appreciated our handiwork on the trails and in the Native Plant Garden.
An enjoyable and informative series of monthly natural history lectures presented at the Visitor Center is also arranged and sponsored by the Friends of San Pedro Valley Park. During the current coronavirus pandemic while the Visitor Center is closed, these popular talks are continuing to be presented to the membership and the general public on Saturdays using a Zoom webinar format.
We are dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of San Pedro Valley County Park and, naturally, new members are always welcome. Information on the Friends is also available at the Visitor Center when you visit the park on weekends.
