Preserve Vistoso's

Mission and Values


Preserve Vistoso is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization formed in 2019 to let our Oro Valley community have a voice in the future of the closed Vistoso Golf Club. Our more than 1,800 members provide a vital, united force in representing the community with the Town of Oro Valley and the property's owner. We believe the best option is to establish the property as a nature preserve and community trail for everyone's benefit.

If you join Preserve Vistoso, you will receive frequent email updates through our newsletter, the PULSE.




The mission of Preserve Vistoso is to ensure the preservation of 208 acres of Sonoran Desert. As part of that effort, we intend to:

  • Enhance natural, cultural educational and recreational resources

  • Foster a passion, appreciation and support for our Sonoran Desert

  • Make the preserve welcoming and accessible to everyone

  • Return the land to a native desert environment

  • Elevate the community's quality of life


We believe that certain values are important in the conduct of our efforts to create the nature preserve. We will be:

  • Community focused

  • Donor centered

  • Dedicated to Volunteerism

  • Collaborative partners with other organizations

  • Passionate in our support for the Preserve

  • Wise stewards of resources

  • Environmentally sensitive
