The Robert F. Nicodemus Memorial Wilderness Project (RFNMWP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose purpose is to restore the wild and natural heritage of the American Southwest by promoting stewardship of the land and its biota. RFNMWP was founded because of the need for environmental restoration, stewardship, and protection of neglected public lands. Our organization coordinates large-scale events that utilize the resources of the local community to provide long-term environmental benefits for open space and wilderness areas. We have established a large and enthusiastic volunteer network that draws upon the diverse strengths of different age groups, races, and cultures to accomplish our common goal of restoring the beauty of the natural landscape. The mission of RFNMWP is to:
* remove litter, graffiti, and invasive vegetation and restore or reroute trails in heavily human-impacted open space and wilderness areas,
* promote volunteer involvement in environmental restoration, stewardship, and protection efforts, and
* seek long-term solutions to environmental challenges through education about land stewardship and native ecosystem function.
