Friends of the Tonto are looking for Volunteers

We are working with the Forest Service to identify their needs, and evaluating activities/projects that match our volunteer interest and capabilities. If you have an interest in volunteering as an individual, or with a group let us know, and watch here and the Events Calendar for new event schedules.

You’re invited to join Gary Hanna, Mesa District Ranger, for a backpacking adventure in the Superstition Wilderness.  This backpacking trip is NOT for the beginner backpacker.
