Education has been the cornerstone of the Friends of Madera Canyon mission since 1988, developed to include Youth and Adult programs and projects in nature, ecological conservation, canyon preservation to encourage everyone to explore, study, and connect with this biologically rich and diverse Arizona canyon and surrounding Sky Island region.

When able to explore nature, we become fascinated, curious, and motivated to learn about healthy connections to the natural world. Connections lead to caring about nature, which can become concern and action toward conservation and preservation. At all trail heads cards for visitor feedback are collected and responses tabulated for the U.S. Forest Service, as well there are boxes with bird lists & trail guides, all provided by Friends of Madera Canyon.
