About

Save Our Mountains Foundation (“SOMF”) is a Phoenix-based nonprofit formed in 1973 by concerned citizens.  SOMF is dedicated to facilitating the improvement of the mountains and desert Preserves in Phoenix.  It provides sanctuary for wildlife in unique, vanishing Sonoran Desert habitat.  Outdoor opportunities for recreation and the enjoyment of nature for all ages and walks of life can now be found here.

Currently we work with our partners to maintain the North Mountain Visitor Center (NMVC) that was shuttered in 2010 due to city budget constraints. We envision this vibrant public/private collaboration as the future of SOMF and our continued work to help the Preserves.
