Welcome

The Friends of Saddle Mountain include approximately 50 volunteers that have assisted BLM in natural and cultural resource inventories and monitoring in the Saddle Mountain region covering nearly 48,000 acres. We have identified and continue to monitor hundreds of archaeological sites and resources in the area.

The Friends of Saddle Mountain established a 501(c)3 organization to directly benefit the resources of Saddle Mountain and BLM’s mission. For more information on how to help FoSM, please click here.
