The mission of the Friends of Juniper Flats is to preserve, protect, and restore the natural and cultural values of the Juniper Flats, Arrastre Canyon, and Grapevine Canyon areas for future generations by:
- Supporting the BLM in its responsibility to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the area;
- Encouraging low impact recreation, such as hiking, and equestrian use;
- Assisting the BLM to ensure adequate management of the area through implementation, monitoring, corrective actions, and enforcement; and
- Increasing public awareness about responsible use of the area.
Who We Are
The Friends of Juniper Flats includes local residents, and others who regularly recreate in the area.
Some of What We Do
Friends of Juniper Flats are currently working on getting some trails designated for hiking and equestrian use in the West Mojave Route Network (WEMO) Process, installing interpretive signs and helping the BLM with their restoration grant. Some of our contributions to the restoration grant include habitat restoration and monitoring.
Juniper Flats Service Area
The area served by the Friends of Juniper Flats is located just south of Apple Valley in San Bernardino County of California, USA. Our Service Area is known as the Juniper Sub Region (AKA the Grapevine Canyon Recreation Lands) and is managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
