Friends of Browns Canyon (FOBC) is a group of passionate outdoor recreationists–hikers, equestrians, whitewater enthusiasts and guides, anglers, mountain bikers, rock climbers, hunters, photographers, and more–who worked to achieve permanent protection for the Browns Canyon area. You can learn more about them by visiting their website, www.brownscanyon.org.

Browns Canyon National Monument was designated by presidential proclamation on February 19, 2015, and FOBC now devotes its time to stewardship, sustainability, and enhancements that will help others enjoy the remarkable Browns Canyon ecosystem and learn about its unique environment and history.

This incredible area provides outstanding fish and wildlife habitat, sweeping views of the Arkansas Valley as well as four-season recreation opportunities for people to explore the outdoors and experience the area’s scenery and solitude. As one of the most popular destinations in the nation for whitewater enthusiasts, Browns Canyon is important to the economic health of local businesses, river outfitters and to the quality of life for surrounding communities.
