WHAT WE DO
The Mission of Preserve Vistoso is to support the preservation of the former Vistoso golf course as a nature preserve and community trail.
The Vistoso nature preserve presents the beauty of the Sonoran Desert teeming with wildlife and artifacts of the Native Americans who lived and hunted there. The existing 6.2-mile, eight-foot-wide concrete path winds through the property providing visitors with views of the Catalina and Tortolita mountains, examples of varied desert vegetation, and the opportunity to view an abundance of wildlife. With easy access from multiple locations, visitors can stroll the property and connect with the natural world we tend take for granted.

The Conservation Fund will transfer the Vistoso property to the Town of Oro Valley in July. We have called it the Vistoso Nature Preserve for many months, but the Town of Oro Valley wants to officially provide a name for the property. Below is an announcement about an exciting contest for the community to name the property. Let’s demonstrate our continuing commitment to our new nature preserve and participate in this contest!
