About Verde Front

Background

The Verde Front began in 2008, stimulated by landscape visioning and subsequent sustainable recreation planning process initially convened by the Prescott National Forest. The collaborative effort served as a catalyst for a landscape scale “all hands, all lands” approach to addressing common outdoor recreation challenges and enhancing the joint capacity of land managers, communities and recreationists to implement shared recreation goals.  

The current emphasis of the Verde Front is on implementation of its sustainable recreation strategy.
