Who We Are

Friends of Boggs Mountain (FOBM) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization formed to enhance the visitor’s experience in the forest through educational, interpretive, and recreational programs, help in development of facilities, and assist with maintenance and infrastructure improvements at Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest (BMDSF). The organization cooperates with BMDSF management and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) to meet those objectives.

With BMDSF oversight and approval, we are organizing work crews to help rebuild Boggs trails. Please support our efforts with a donation and/or join as a member to help us revitalize the forest for all visitors! Thank you in advance.

We're back in Boggs doing trail work! We're excited to get dirty in Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest, once again. We're limited to small COVID compliant groups for now but we're optimistic that will change and we'll once again host larger volunteer days. Stay tuned for future invites and how you can sign up. In the meantime we're continuing to raise funds to support re-building trails in BMDSF and work towards bringing back one of many events. BMDSF hosted numerous events prior to the Valley Fire and we sure miss the smiles those events brought to Cobb. We're working hard to bring back outdoor events and the smiles generated by communities gathering to enjoy the outdoors together.The NorCal Interscholastic Cycling League is committed to bringing back a safe, fun filled race for high school students across Northern California. Help us bring back our trail system and provide a fun venue for our kids to get outside.Thank you Outride for supporting getting kids outside. Visit our fundraising page to help bring Boggs trails back. We look forward to seeing everyone on Boggs trails! you to our members and supporters who've been patient while we wait out the global pandemic and who continue to cheer us on as we were on hold this past year. Let's get dirty together and build some trails. ... See MoreSee Less
