The Agua Fria Open Space Alliance, Inc. (AFOSA) encourages people to become more responsible for their environment. We believe this works best when attention is focused is on the visible elements of each person's immediate surroundings.
AFOSA is named for the Agua Fria River that flows above and below ground from Glassford Hill east of Prescott, Arizona to the Gila River west of Phoenix. AFOSA is principally concerned with the 1500 square-mile upper portion of the river’s watershed. There, despite small dams and reservoirs on its tributaries, the river rages wildly after summer thunderstorms, and many stretches of beautiful semi-natural riparian vegetation cover its banks.
