One for the Verde, a program of Friends of Verde River Greenway, works in collaboration with local businesses across the Verde Valley to restore and preserve the Verde River, our precious water, and beautiful natural areas while supporting and boosting our local economy. Participating businesses contribute to a project fund which is used expressly for river and water conservation related projects. One for the Verde helps those businesses attract more patrons through social media, events, geotourism, project recognition, advertising and their own involvement in community conservation efforts.
Partnering with local businesses to preserve our streams and support a healthy economy.
A healthy, free flowing river and thriving Verde Valley economy that support each other.
