The Friends of Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument was established by local residents in 2000. Their primary goal is to support the Bureau of Land Management as it carries out the mandates of the presidential proclamation.

The group’s mission statement has three parts: To advocate for and educate about the scientific and historic values for which the CSNM was established; To foster public support for the protection of the area’s ecological integrity and biological diversity;To support BLM’s essential role in protection and conservation of the Soda Mountain Wilderness area.
