Sherwood Forest Friends

Sherwood Forest Friends (SFF) is a non-profit, membership organization created to:

  • Conserve and protect sensitive land within the Cedar Mountain community.
  • Provide educational opportunities. 
  • Preserve the unique culture of the area.

Sherwood Forest Friends embrace local history. We’re fascinated by the region’s ancient geology, treasure our flora and fauna, and enjoy the singular music, art, and dance that make this area unique.

Together we showcase artists and performers who enchant us with their talent. Together we protect natural areas that provide habitat for the plants and animals that share these woods. Together we support the scholars and research that will preserve these resources for future generations.

Sherwood Forest has a homeowner’s association, but it is limited by provisions of the NC Planned Community Act, as well as Association Covenants and Bylaws. In 2017, a group of residents formed and incorporated Sherwood Forest Friends in order to allow exemptions for donations under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and to celebrate and conserve the natural and cultural resources of the Cedar Mountain.
