  Green Valley Hiking Club
Members of the Green Valley Hiking Club periodically hike the trails to assist in keeping them in good condition.  Weeds and brush are cut and litter is removed.  The handicap-accessible trail is swept before its use by Assisted Living Groups.
  Hummingbird Monitoring Network
Over 25 hummingbird species are now threatened or endangered! The Hummingbird Network is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 2002.  As a science-based, project-driven conservation organization, the "Network" has a  history of working across borders and would not exist without the support and commitment of volunteers and partner organizations.  Hummingbird monitoring is conducted in California, British Columbia, Colorado, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona, including Madera Canyon. The program is expanding into Mexico in the near future.

Nogales Ranger District, Coronado National Forest
The Friends of Madera Canyon and the Coronado National Forest have worked closely together on education programs, interpretation, and improvement of facilities in Madera Canyon for over 20 years.  The Bud Gode Interpretive Nature Trail and the Amphitheater Bridge Project represent two recent accomplishments requiring significant commitments of time and money on the part of both organizations.

Madera Canyon would not be the enjoyable place it is today without this hard work at all levels. The Madera Canyon Recreation Area is managed by the Nogales Ranger District of the Coronado National Forest.  The office can be reached by calling (520) 281-2296, writing to the District Ranger, 303 Old Tucson Rd., Nogales, AZ 85621 or emailing
