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.

May 4, 2024For the 19th year Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest hosted the Bike Monkey Eight Hour Mountain Bike Race. Despite a cold rain that soon turned to snow, 200 riders started the race at 9:00 am Saturday morning. By the end of the race at 5:00 pm a bedraggled muddy group of riders sailed past the finish line. It was an eventful, highly memorable day for all who participated. FOBM, once again, set up a booth to sell t-shirts and other merchandise as well as hosting the beer bar. The cold didn’t seem to dissuade the riders and other guests from enjoying a cold beverage after, and even during, the event helping us to generate enough money to fund a few more miles of trails. Thanks again to Bike Monkey for allowing us to participate and all who helped pull it off!In picture from left to right: Linda Seropian-Miller, Mary Sutton, Kathy Blair and John Phelps.Camille, Joel, Asher and Jessica Pyska ...
