Conserving and Protecting our Surroundings
We work with conservation leaders throughout Arizona to protect and preserve our natural environment, here at the project site and around the region.
- Together with the Nature Conservancy, Arizona Audubon, the US Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management, we will preserve and protect 5,300 acres of conservation land to be given back to the public as part of a land exchange. This work includes re-establishing native plants, watching over a mesquite forest, an artesian well, wetlands and more than 200 species of birds and mammals, as well as reintroducing native plans.
- Working with the Queen Creek Coalition, we’ve opened up hiking and climbing on our land.
- In close collaboration with the Boyce Thompson Arboretum, the United States Forest Service and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, we are supporting the effort protect endangered species in the nearby Tonto National Forest, and to help them thrive.
- Our employees worked with several organizations to create the Legends of Superior Trails, which connects the historic mining town of Superior with the Arizona Trail and winds through the riparian forest along Queen Creek.
