Friends of Redington Pass Expands its Mission
At FRP’s November 2013 meeting, the Board agreed to expand its mission as well as its Board membership to create a broader and more inclusive network of recreation and conservation groups to work alongside the Coronado National Forest and other public agencies. FRP seeks to pursue a new role as an umbrella organization for all friends of Redington Pass and serve as a balanced and open forum to discuss our common and diverse interests in the future of Redington Pass.

Vision
Friends of Redington Pass envision protection of the rural backcountry setting of Redington Pass for all recreational and resource users, while providing for public access and management of future diversified recreational growth.

Mission Statement
Friends of Redington Pass (FRP) advocates for the responsible stewardship of the Redington Pass area, balanced recreational and resource uses and the preservation of its ecological, scenic, and cultural resources. FRP seeks to bring together representatives from all user groups in furtherance of its objectives and consistent with the 2013 Coronado National Forest Draft Forest Plan Revision.

FRP advocates for:

  • Conservation and restoration of sensitive riparian areas along the Tanque Verde Creek, its watershed and wildlife corridors throughout the Pass
  • Improved opportunities for dispersed recreational activities on the Pass, assuring clean, natural settings and well-managed motorized and non-motorized uses
  • Reductions in unsafe or illegal activities and excessive noise and disturbance throughout Redington Pass.

For upcoming and past Events.
