Daughters of the American Revolution

The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a service organization open to any woman age 18 years and older who can prove lineal descent from an American Revolutionary War Patriot. Much of the work of DAR is accomplished by volunteers in its chapters across the United States and internationally in order to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism.


Madera Canyon Chapter, NSDAR, is a local chapter of DAR. Our chapter is based in Green Valley, Arizona, one of Arizona’s many welcoming retirement communities.

Our Chapter

In keeping with the purpose of DAR, chapter members work together on numerous projects in order to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism. We all have busy lives, so our projects offer ways to contribute that fit our schedules.

Madera Canyon Chapter, NSDAR, was organized in April 1990. As a new chapter we were composed of 38 members. We remain a small and welcoming chapter with over 70 members strong and growing. The chapter is pleased to have many associate members from other areas and numerous guests at our monthly meetings, October through April.

We invite you to contact our chapter registrar who will help you get started in becoming a member of DAR, including tracing your heritage to find an American Revolutionary War Patriot.

Chapter Namesake

Our chapter chose the name Madera Canyon because it is a well-known area in the Santa Rita Mountains located just east of Green Valley. The canyon environment attracts campers, nature lovers, and bird lovers from around the world. It is the home of a variety of rare bird species including the Elegant Trogon (Trogon elegans).
