Friends of Public Lands

GARNA’s Friends of Public Lands initiatives honor GARNA’s 24 year-old roots as a cooperating association with the US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Colorado Parks and Wildife, and the cities, towns and counties of the Upper Arkansas Valley. GARNA manages the largest group of volunteers in the Upper Arkansas River valley through the Upper Arkansas Wilderness Volunteers, Friends of Fourmile, Friends of Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area and the Envision Recreation in Balance Initiative. Each year, over 200 hardworking volunteers clean, maintain and improve the health of the watershed.
