Since 1979, FRIENDS has focused on increasing local knowledge, participation and stewardship of San Juan Countys natural resources. Protecting our local resources requires the engagement of all citizens.
FRIENDS education programs focus primarily on fostering individual stewardship ethics, developing support for protection and restoration efforts, and increasing local cultural and natural heritage preservation.
Programs and Events
Each year, FRIENDS hosts lectures, beach walks, technical workshops and other events to provide important scientific and policy information to our local community. FRIENDS works with property owners, teachers, realtors, contractors, land managers, students and the general public, to increase awareness and action by all San Juan County residents. FRIENDS also promotes hands-on involvement in stewardship activities through the Tribal Canoe Journey, Anti-Litter Program and volunteer and internship opportunities.
