The Arizona Natural History Association (ANHA) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1988 to assist the USDA Forest Service with public education, interpretation, research, activities, and special projects to benefit Arizona’s public lands.
Our goal is to assist our partners in promoting public awareness of the sensitive balance needed to preserve the land and its history while maintaining commercial and recreational use by current and future generations.
We currently operate in 13 locations; 10 gift shops in U.S. Forest Service Ranger Stations and 3 gift shops in U.S. Forest Service Visitor Centers. The Visitor Centers are located throughout North Central Arizona in Heber/Overgaard on the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests, Roosevelt Lake on the Tonto National Forest, and Sedona on the Coconino National Forest.
Our funding comes from memberships, private donations, and sales from our specialty gift shops. A percentage of profits from our sales goes back to the organizations we support specifically for interpretive, educational and research projects.
In our stores, you will find maps, books, apparel, gifts, and souvenirs to help you plan your trip or help prolong your memories of a wonderful visit. Visit our online store.
