Protect Arizona's Wild and Scenic River - Fossil Creek!

Congress designated the Fossil Creek a Wild and Scenic River in 2009 -- only the second river in Arizona to be designated as Wild and Scenic. Fossil Creek includes a unique and important riparian environment that is one of Arizona's best habitats for threatened and endangered native fish and other wildlife. It and the surrounding wilderness areas are also popular recreation sites for hiking, birding, fishing, nature study, photography, and more.

The Forest Service has developed a Draft Comprehensive Resource Management Plan (CRMP) and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that will guide management actions and policies on Fossil Creek for decades. This is our last chance to improve the proposed plan. The Forest Service needs to hear from everyone who cares about this beautiful and biologically rich area.

Please use the button below to send your message to the Forest Service to develop a plan that better protects the unique and important values of this beautiful area or consider writing and sending comments to:
