Our missionpassionpurpose is to preserve our local ridges.
In 2003 a group of local residents came together who believed something must be done before the beauty of the Rattlesnake ridges were permanently changed by irreversible development. When we learned that 574 acres was for sale on the crest and slopes of Badger Mountain, our goal became to acquire this land for its scenic view and as open space. We named ourselves the Friends of Badger Mountain.
Help Us Reach Our Goal
The Ridge Preservation and Trail Campaign defines a shared community vision of creating a connecting system of trails across four of our local ridges – Little Badger, Badger, Candy, and Red Mountain. Now we have the opportunity to realize a critical step toward achieving this vision by acquiring 205 acres of Candy Mountain.
