The Verde Front: Having access to a unique resource like the Verde River gives our community and visitors a connection and appreciation of its beauty and value.  As a member of the Verde Front, FVRG participates in this collaborative partnership where public land managers and local communities work together to achieve common goals as they relate to recreational access, marketing and tourism.

Geo-TourismThe National Geographic Maps Division encourages adoption of sustainable tourism strategies around the world as part of the National Geographic Society’s dedication to inspiring people to care about the planet.

Geotourism is defined as “tourism that sustains or enhances the geographical character of a place – its environment, culture, aesthetics, heritage, and the well-being of its residents”.

Camp Verde Recreational PlanFriends of Verde River Greenway, through a grant to the Town of Camp Verde will fund efforts with AZ State Parks to develop a joint river recreation master plan for the Town of Camp Verde and contiguous AZ State Park properties in the lower Verde Valley.
