Welcome Friends, To Dempster Country

Homepage of the Friends of Dempster Country

"With a road another world enters, the loud new world we know so well and the old order is just an empty punctured shell. It's spirit gone. One can only hope that room can still be found for both."


Friends of Dempster Country is a not-for-profit society dedicated to increasing understanding and appreciation of the unique land through which the Dempster Highway passes, ultimately cultivating deeper respect for Dempster Country.


The Friends of Dempster Country will promote and facilitate Natural History Research and Education in Dempster Country and assist in meeting the environmental protection mandate of Tombstone Territorial Park.
