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.
